Debt Management Plan (DMP)

Information about the most popular debt solutions

Debt Management Plan (DMP) is an informal agreement with the people you owe money to (a creditor) to help you repay your debts in full with a reduced monthly payment over an extended period of time.

DMPs are provided by debt management companies and charitable organisations who negotiate with your creditors to lower your monthly repayments and freeze/lower interest and charges. Commercial companies usually charge a fee for this service, but you can seek independent help and advice from a charitable organisation.

A DMP is an informal alternative debt solution to Bankruptcy, Debt Relief Order (DRO) or Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) which are formal insolvency solutions for people in debt.

Advantages of a Debt Management Plan

  • Informal arrangement that avoids the need for formal insolvency procedures
  • Creditors may suspend actions against you
  • Creditors may freeze interest payments
  • One monthly debt repayment

Disadvantages of a Debt Management Plan

  • Due to this being an informal arrangement, creditors can change their approaches at any time
  • Credit rating will still be affected
  • Reducing your monthly repayments will extend the length of repayment and may mean you pay more in total over a longer period
  • Your credit rating may by harmed during a DMP. Your DMP will be noted on your credit file and will be affected for a further 6 years after your last DMP payment.
