Debt Management Plan

A DMP is a half way house between doing separate deals and an IVA. A DMP is administered by a debt management company acting on your behalf. Typically, you agree a set amount to pay each month. This is then shared between your creditors in proportion to their debts. However, you should bear the following in mind:

  • Creditors may continue to charge interest on their debts
  • A DMP is not a legally binding agreement
  • Creditors may decide not to participate in a DMP and continue to pursue you
