Hi - I am a librarian with an enquiry from a customer regarding business status whilst in an IVA, specifically whether the individual is barred from starting up a business? Any help or pointers to other information sources would be great. Thanks

Hi jane r and welcome to the forum - apoligies for the tardy reply.

Your customer ought to have no difficulty in setting up a business whilst he is in an IVA, but the business will need to provide him with sufficient income to be able to maintain his usual IVA payments. He will also need to advise his supervisor of his changed status and provide copies of his trading accounts to the supervisor each year to ensure that he is paying over all his disposable income.

He ought to contact an insolvency practitioner directly to seek more specific advice.

Hope this helps.
