Debt Solvo Limited are committed to providing you with the highest level of service. To ensure you have all the information you need to make the right decision, we have put together some clear guides on the different fee structures across an IVA.
There is no fee for our initial consultation and advice. If an IVA is recommended as a suitable-solution for you, and you decide to proceed, there are two fees associated with an IVA: the Nominee fee and the Supervisor fee.
But if you choose not to proceed with an IVA with Debt Solvo Limited (or any other third party provider we suggest) we will not charge you for the advice or support that we provide you before your IVA is set up.
Below is an explanation of these fees and how they are charged. We follow industry accepted standards for how we charge fees.
Debt Solvo Limited will help by:
- Advising you on all the options available to you.
- Collating all the documents that are needed to verify the value of any assets you own.
- Preparing the first draft of your income and expenditure schedule.
- Collating details of your creditors and writing to advise them of the position and seek up to date balances on your accounts
- Liaising with you and your creditors.
- Verifying your financial statement in reference to your documents.
- Verifying the advice we have given to you.
- Dealing with any creditor enquiries.
- Seeking any additional information needed and drafting your proposal documents.
- Either acting as nominee or handing over your file to one of our panel of Insolvency Practitioners.
These are fee incurred by the Insolvency Practitioner for agreeing to act for you and for holding your creditors decision procedure (usually a Virtual Meeting). The Nominee’s fees are paid out of the proceeds of the arrangement if it is agreed by your creditors.
If your creditors do not approve your IVA, then there are no upfront fees to pay.
Fee Structure 1
The fee chargeable is typically equivalent to six monthly payments.
Fee Structure 2
A fixed fee of £1,560.00 (+ VAT where applicable) is charged.
Once your IVA has been approved by creditors, your Nominee becomes your Supervisor who will be responsible for monitoring and supervising your proposal for its duration (usually over 5 or 6 years). Again, these are paid out of the payments received into the IVA. You do not have to pay these up front.
Fee Structure 1
The fees that are chargeable for this are usually expressed as a proportion of what is recovered for your creditors in the IVA – usually 15% of realisations (in other words 15%of the total payments you make in your IVA).
Fee Structure 2
The total fees (Supervisor Fee + Nominee’s Fee) and expenses (which are very dependent upon your individual circumstances) are unlikely to exceed £3,650.00 in total. This means that the Supervisor’s fees are usually a fixed fee of £1,750.00. This may vary a little.
Fee Structure 3
Alternatively, fees may be dependent on how much time your Insolvency Practitioner spends in supervising your arrangement and are based on time and hourly rates. This is usually reserved for the more complex cases with many different facets to them.
Please note that all Insolvency fees i.e. Nominee and Supervisors fees are paid out of the proceeds of the arrangement. You would not be required to make any additional payments in respect of Nominee’s and Supervisors costs.
You will be provided with details annually of your Supervisor’s fees in the annual report that they will prepare and which will be forwarded to you and your creditors.
