What is an Informal Agreement?

An Informal Agreement is an agreement with your creditors that will help you overcome your debt struggle.

  • Without the severe consequences of formal agreements, like Debt Agreements and Personal Insolvency Agreements and of course, Bankruptcy itself.

  • Without the long-lasting impact on your Credit Report.

  • Without any effect on your employment.

CASE STUDY

Example of a Informal Agreement client

Chris’s expected repayments to his 5 creditors, before his Informal Agreement, totalled $1,605 per month - this amount was not affordable for Chris. The payments we were able to negotiate with Chris’s creditors, resulted in repayments of $800 per month.

We were able to demonstrate Chris’s hardship and have his creditors see that as well and so accept the Informal Agreement Proposal. We were also able to negotiate with Chris’s creditors to have all interest and fees frozen on his accounts.

Because Informal Agreements require creditors to agree to your offer, it is wise to have Beyond Debt on your side.

#FINANCIALFREEDOM

Who can do an Informal Agreement?

  • Anybody experiencing verifiable financial hardship.
  • This can be due to a decrease in income and/or an increase in expenses.
  • It means you have to cut back significantly on living expenses to make your normal debt repayments and usually this just isn’t possible without considerable hardship.

Common reasons for the hardship are:

  • Poor budgeting skills along with overuse of credit.
  • A death in the family.
  • Loss of a job and the new job does not pay as much.
  • Poor budgeting skills along with overuse of credit.
  • The closure of a business.
  • Illness or injury, of yourself or within the family.
  • Your living arrangements have been impacted by divorce or separation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A Couple Things People Ask

Once creditors have approved my Informal Agreement, can they cancel the plan whenever they feel like it?

Whilst an Informal Agreement is not a legally binding agreement, once your creditors have agreed to it, it is highly unlikely they would cancel it. The best way to ensure this never happens, is to make your repayments on time.

How long will the plan last?

The term of each plan is tailor-made for your circumstances, depending on what your creditors agree to and what you can afford.

Will my creditors call me?

Once Beyond Debt have been appointed, we will advise your creditors that they are now dealing with Beyond Debt only, meaning you can answer your phone without the fear of creditors calling.

What types of debts can be included?

There is no set rules for what can and can't be included in an informal agreement. Generally secured debts can not be included but give us a call to see what we can do

 

Does an Informal Agreement stop legal action?

An Informal Agreement will usually stop any further legal action in relation to the debts involved.
