If you finding it hard to pay all of your bills each month, we may be able to help. You may be suitable for a debt plan that reduces the amount you pay off your debt each month. This can be a temporary fix until you are back on your feet, but we also have longer term plans available.
Writing Off Debt
If you can’t pay all of your bills each month, a better solution for everyone might be a plan that writes off some of your debt. This means that you pay what you can afford, and the credit companies still receive some money.
Full and Final Settlements
Sometimes, a friend or family member is willing to help you with a lump sum to pay off your debt. Or if you are having problems paying back your debt, but have a redundancy payout, for example, you may be able to use this to pay back some of your total debt in one go. In return, the rest of your debt is written off. It is important that this is handled correctly, so that everybody receives a fair and ‘proportionate’ share. We can show you how to work this out and offer you free letter templates.

You make one payment to us each month, and we pay the people you owe money to.
