Frequently asked questions

Our online debt advice tool will give you advice based on your circumstances, including where you live in the UK, and recommend a solution. Common debt solutions include:

  • debt management plans (DMP)
  • individual voluntary arrangements (IVA)
  • bankruptcy
  • debt relief orders (DRO)

If you live in Scotland you may also be recommended a:

  • trust deed, or
  • debt payment plan via the Debt Arrangement Scheme (DAS)

Our advice is based on the following: If you can repay your debt in full over a reasonable period of time, we'll recommend a debt solution based on repayment over an insolvency solution. 

An insolvency solution may write off some or all of your debt, but it may also have a more detrimental impact on different areas of your life. This may include your chances of obtaining future credit or any assets such as your home or car.

We’ll advise you of your recommended solution, and also inform you of other solutions that are appropriate to your circumstances. This may include debt solutions that we cannot provide for you and where this is the case, we’ll inform you of other sources of information and help.

Our online debt advice tool offers the same expert advice as you would receive using our telephone service. We’ll help you to create a personal budget and take details of your debts. We’ll then use this information to work out your options. You’ll get a personal action plan explaining what to do next.

After you’ve completed online debt advice you'll get a personal action plan, giving you clear and practical advice about how to deal with your debts. We’ll also provide simple steps for you to follow to get things started. This will include instructions on how to deal with your creditors while you’re getting things set up.

You can go through a full debt advice session by using Debt Remedy. However, if you'd prefer to receive advice over the phone you can call our Helpline.
