What Is Debt Management?

Debt Management is an informal arrangement between yourself and your creditors

It allows you to pay back your debts at a rate you can afford. The rate at which you pay it back is calculated by taking into consideration all of your income and all your outgoings.

Debt management is ideally suited to debts that are classed as non-priority (credit cards, loans, store cards, overdrafts and others). However, debt management services are not ideal for priority debts such as council tax, court fines and mortgage arrears.
