There is no data to state how often IVAs get approved across the board. Each individual debt management company or debt charity will have its own rejection rates.

What percentage of IVAs are accepted?

The percentage of IVAs that get accepted will vary between different debt charities and financial companies.

An IVA is accepted when at least 75% of your creditors agree to the proposal made by your insolvency practitioner. All creditors vote on whether to approve or reject the IVA. Even those that reject the IVA will be included in it if at least 75% of all creditors vote in favour. 

For example, if three out of your four creditors vote to approve the IVA, it will be approved and all four creditors will be included. However, if only two of your four creditors vote in favour of the IVA it will be rejected.
