Experian report on insolvency
"Insolvencies rose by two-thirds in the second quarter of this year, while IVAs, which make up almost half the total, soared by over 150 per cent. Our research shows that there are marked differences in the numbers and growth of IVAs and bankruptcies in different parts of the country and we have to ask ourselves why this is. There is evidence that consumers are being encouraged into IVAs without fully understanding the long-term consequences."
