This example is for a new client who approached us in March 2014 for debt advice. From the first month of the client's debt management plan, 74.4% of their monthly contributions were distributed to their creditors (£159.96). The duration of the plan and the savings are dependent on any changes to the client's circumstances as the plan progresses, and may be longer or shorter than the 48 months quoted.
If you were to enter into a debt management plan, the duration and any savings would depend on your personal circumstances, your creditors and whether interest and charges can be frozen.
If you choose to restructure your debt over a longer term it could affect your credit rating and cost you more.

There are a range of debt solutions available that can help reduce or clear your debts, such as Debt Management Plans, Individual Voluntary Arrangements, Trust Deeds and Bankruptcy. Your individual circumstances will determine which product might be right for you.
Lenders do not have to freeze charges however, many mainstream lenders are signed up to the 'Lending Code' which is a set of standards that financial institutions can choose to follow. The interpretation of these standards may see lenders stop interest and charges to help a customer in financial difficulty, especially if it will help them to repay their debt. Other lenders may choose to reduce interest rather than freeze it. It is at the discretion of the lender.
A Debt Management Plan will affect your credit rating however it is likely that your credit rating has already been affected if you are missing payments.
