Tax Debts also known as Revenue debts including overpaid benefits, self-assessment tax, VAT and PAYE/NIC generally cannot be included in a DMP although tax debt is an unsecured debt. The numbers of self-employed have increased over the years and now account for around 15% of the working population. It is not a surprise therefore that the numbers of individuals struggling with tax debts is increasing as well. Dealing with arrears of tax debts is not easy. HMR & C generally will pursue the strategy that tax debts need to be paid as they fall due and if not you risk getting penalties and will face action. The longer you leave it, the more difficult it is to achieve an agreeable payment plan with HMRC.
The main reason is that it will normally take many years to repay your debts in full using this type of informal debt solution and HMRC will not be prepared to wait that long for their money. First Credit Advice will help you to get an agreement for a separate ‘Time to Pay’ arrangement with HMRC which will get the outstanding tax paid within 12 to 24 months. Once this is in place you can then use whatever disposable income you have left to negotiate with your remaining creditors.
First Credit Advice Limited will assist you with your mortgage arrears by making reduced and affordable repayments towards your outstanding balance of arrears. The repayments will be calculated after generating your realistic budget and disposable income thereafter. The main features of repayment arrangement with your lender consist of:
- Freezing down interest on the outstanding balance
- Reversal of the arrear charges and late payment charges
- Lender not pursuing you for the payment of outstanding debt unless you are paying minimum Norgan Amount applicable
This happens when the amount your home is sold for is not enough to pay the outstanding mortgage and any secured loans. Money you still owe to your mortgage or secured loan lender in this situation, is called a 'mortgage shortfall'. In other words, a shortfall occurs when the value of a seller's remaining mortgage is greater than the sale price of their property, forcing the seller to pay the difference in order to discharge the mortgage. Mortgage short fall debt is an unsecured debt.
A lender can only recover a shortfall debt if it is viable to do so and if they do, they must tell you in writing, within six years of the date your home was sold. Mortgage shortfall debt will become statue barred under Limitations Act 1980 after 12 years of the sale of property.
