Personal Insolvency Options
Personal debt solutions for individuals
The best solution to address your needs will depend on your personal circumstances. Your priority should be to get expert advice as soon as possible when you realise you are experiencing financial difficulties. The faster you get help, the more options will be available to find a workable solution to relieve your stress and restore your life back to normal as quickly as possible.
Regulated personal insolvency experts are available at Opus to talk to you about your financial issues once you contact us for advice. The initial discussion will be free of charge.
The main courses of action open to you are:
- Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA)
- Debt Arrangement Scheme (Scotland only)
- Sequestration (Scotland only)
- Trust Deed (Scotland only)
Opus offers services in connection with each of these procedures.
There are also bespoke debt management plans available, which can be designed to reflect your personal circumstances, living arrangements, family status, assets and so on.
We will always discuss the full range of options open to each individual in the context of their personal circumstances, explaining the advantages and disadvantages of each procedure.
Opus is a commercial, for-profit organisation. After any initial free-of-charge consultation, the services provided by Opus are offered in return for payment as described in the details of each debt solution procedure.
Fees and key information
We only charge a fee if you opt for one of the debt solutions we offer. Fees will depend on which debt solution we provide and what your personal circumstances are. All fees will be discussed prior to commencement of any service or debt repayment plan. Click here to read our fees and key info.
You can find information on all options for resolving debts in England and Wales from the Insolvency Service. For debtors in Scotland, assistance in finding debt solutions can be accessed here. Free and impartial debt counselling services are available from other not-for-profit organisations, including Money Helper.
Occasionally, where appropriate, we will refer clients to other agencies such as Citizens Advice Bureau or debt advisory charities. These other sources of advice may be paid by creditors, especially banks to help debtors deal with their financial difficulties. We do not receive any payment for these referrals.
We hope that you will be satisfied with the service that we provide, but we recognise that there may be occasions where you will not be satisfied with the way in which the matter has been dealt with. In those circumstances please refer to our Complaints Procedure.
