Debt management company benefits from booming sector

Debt Free Direct joins other companies in announcing record revenues, as IVA activity rockets   

Debt management company Debt Free Direct saw its turnover leap this year as
companies reaped the rewards of a boom in Individual Voluntary Agreements (IVA).

The company’s
turnover surged by 101% for a six-month period compared with the same time frame
in 2005.

Debt Free Direct, which specialises in resolving credit card debt, announced
that profits would be ‘significantly more than double’ the amount it made in
2005.

Accuma, another
player in the sector, has already celebrated a 250% increase in turnover, and
reported a ten-fold rise in profits.

Both businesses focus on the drafting of IVA’s between financial institutions
and debt-laden clients. The agreements have generated controversy because
interest is frozen on outstanding debts once the IVA has been agreed.

Additionally, debt-management companies broker a deal that can see debtors
paying as little as 25% of their original debt.

Research compiled by the
Insolvency
Service
 shows record numbers of people are filing for bankruptcy.
