Bankruptcy

Sometimes, there’s simply no way to repay what you owe in a reasonable time.

If your debts are particularly high and / or your income is low, you may need to think about declaring yourself bankrupt.

Like an IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement), bankruptcy is a form of insolvency: it’s a legal process that will share out your assets fairly among your creditors, protect you from further legal action and upon successful completion (normally after 1 year), write off your outstanding debt allowing you to make a new start.
