In an IVA is it possible to start your own business or is it unusually difficult?

    Nothing stopping you starting your own business.

    The only hitch might be opening a business bank account. In this respect, if you struggle with the high street banks, 'Cash Plus' do a card-based business account for IVAers. Only snag is that they don't accept cheque receipts/payments.

    However, if you register your business address at your accountant's, things are a little easier.

    Good luck.

    Accountants will often allow limited companies to use their address for companies house as a registered office but it's not the norm for a business to just use their accountants address as their own. You should check with them first.

    my only observation would be that business start ups don't pay much- so how will you continue with your IVA payments? Cashflow is a huge issue for the self employed, sometimes a lack of and sometimes you have loads. I would think very seriously about that- and just make sure you can ride the storm of bill payments in the early days and months.
