    Living with an IPA/lump sum payment percentages 5th Dec 17 at 5:52 PM
    Hey everyone! I am currently in an IPA which I think is reasonable given the circumstances behind my enforced BR and I have had a good read through this forum which I have gained some invaluable advice from.

    My income is occasionally variable by way of sales commissions. I know that I have to inform the OR within 21 days of receiving these payments. I have been trying to find out if the OR is likely to take 100% everytime I receive extra payments for the remaining period of my IPA or is it on a case by case basis. I have asked the OR a number of times but have had zero response to the direct question.

    The reason I ask is that I found an article online in the insolvencydirect bis gov uk technical manual website that states:

    (a) Where the bankrupt remains undischarged the whole of the lump sum;
    (b) Where the bankrupt is discharged and the order or agreement has:-

    24-36 months remaining 75% of the lump sum;
    12-24 months remaining 50% of the lump sum;
    1-12 months remaining 25% of the lump sum.

    However - there is a caveat to this - it talks specifically about pension lump sum payments, not payments received through work income. I totally appreciate this document could be (a) out date and (b) not applicable

    Is there anyone well into an IPA in a similar position who could share their experiences. I need to set my expectations for the remaining (pretty long) term left of my IPA IE is it likely that I will need to pay 100% of all my commission payments into my estate until the last payment date of my IPA.

    Thanks in advance everyone!
