Your creditors should update their records accordingly once they have been told the IVA is complete and you have come off the register however this often doesn't happen or the records are not adjusted properly.

You may want to take steps to tidy it up yourself.

You might find this quick video I made about cleaning up your credit record useful:

Noddle, Clearscore and Totally Money are also free credit agencies to consider using:

It will be deleted once your six years are up, but always better to hang on to your completion in case.

Always, always, always keep a copy of that certificate as you never know when the IVA might be brought up in the future. Although it drops off of your records at the credit reference agencies your former creditors might keep records of their own.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

Since the end of my IVA and my credit file getting all pretty and positive I have never needed to provide my CC. However, I have 3 copies, one in the fire safe one in the Daughters house with other documents and one in my draw. You just never know!
