IVA Guide

The IVA Guide is a leading provider of information and guidance on IVA's, debt and debt solutions in the UK.

As founder members of the Insolvency Network we are active in raising awareness with individuals and businesses on the benefits of receiving financial advice and providing greater information to wider audiences.

Our Mission

Debt problems can effect anyone at anytime. The stress they cause impacts not only the individual that is in debt but also their families. Many people in debt do not know where to turn and keep things bottled up. By raising awareness of the issues people in debt face, and providing a free to access resource for help and guidance, we aim to help to overcome the debt problems and financial education issues the UK faces.

Everyone's debt problem and situation is different

The IVA Guide was set up as a dedicated source of IVA advice, to ensure people get the advice and help they need, when they need it.

Everyone's debt problem is different and requires a tailored solution to achieve the best possible outcome for all involved.

Not all Insolvency Practices are the same, some specialise in dealing with self employed IVA's, others are experts at dealing with commercial insolvencies whilst some are set up to deal with a high volume of relatively straightforward personal debt cases.

Likewise, not everyone needing help is the same. Some prefer a face to face meeting, with an advisor visiting them at home. Others prefer to deal with an advisor who will advise them over the phone and send any paperwork through the post.

The IVA Guide, with our panel of specialists and the strength of the Insolvency Network, we will match you with the best advisor to deal with your particular situation and preferences.

We hand pick our specialist partner insolvency practitioners based on our own vetting process, monitoring their current workload to ensure you have access to the right professionals to deal with your circumstances and those who are able to advise and work with you to deliver the best solution possible in the shortest possible time.

Partner Solution Providers are selected on the following criteria:


  • Communication & Customer Service
  • Current Work Load and Capacity
  • Free Initial Consulation
  • Customer Satisfaction
  • Speed of Service
  • Creditor Relations
  • Transparency of Costs
  • FCA/R3/IPA/ICAS/ICO Regulated & Monitored

The IVA Guide work with key policy makers, opinion formers and the media to promote financial education, and ensure the work and views of Insolvency Practioners are reflected in the press and social media.
