I have a question please regarding taking up the post of a trustee, as I have been approached to do so.
I entered a F&F IVA in June 2016, completed February 2017, I have read that being in an IVA or similar precludes you from being a trustee in a charity, however does it have any bearing that I filed a F&F, and that it is due to drop off next month altogether.
As far as I am aware, providing that you have been issued with your completion certificate, you are discharged from the IVA and, therefore, not disqualified as a Trustee. The Charity Commission might be worth a call to check.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
IVA Completed 23rd July 2013 .... C.C. 10th January 2014 http://foggy.blogs.iva.co.uk
It depends on the charities specific regulations they have around financial matters linked to their trustees. In my iva I was allowed to continue as it was very specifically worded with regards to ever having been declared bankrupt .... have a good read of any constitution or terms of reference
Sharing from experiences of dealing with debt
There is a solution for everyone .... Just need to stay positive !
