Excellent work! The only thing I would say, is that ten creditor entries may not be enough for some people.

Good Job!

That might still not be enough!

I have dealt with cases before where a single person has had 35 credit cards totalling 155,000!!

You might need a second page!

I appreciate that there must be some exceptional cases, I guess the aim is to cater for the majority at this time. Am I right in assuming that 15 enteries is suitable for testing purposes, or does the figure really need to be higher.

On an "IMHO Note" I would have thought that between 7 & 10 would have been typical or am I alittle on the naive side!!

Tony thats a very good idea, but you could also do the same thing for savings accounts/assets.

15 should be fine Tony. As you say, its unlikely that people will need this many but it was the only vaguely useful thing I could come up with

Hi,

That is very good and easy to use. I wasn't exactly sure what the purpose of the calc was. But I like to know things like, if I pay back this much each month, how long will it be until the debt is clear? That sort of thing.

Very useful though.

All this does is calculate how much you have to pay each creditor, so that ALL creditors are paid off at the same time.

Is there a calculator on here that can be used to work out pro-rata offers of payments to creditors please? Or does anyone know where I could find one that works with "Microsoft Works" (don't have excel :rolleyes: )

Many thanks x

I'm planning to add that function into the SOA Calculator at makesenseofcards. I may try to get that done over the festive period.

Hi.

It's very easy to work out what to offer each creditor.
