Why should you choose debt relief planning (DRP) to restructure your debt?

Let’s learn more about the advantages of debt relief planning as below:

As mentioned above, legal procedures are not required for apply DRP, and this helps to reduce a lot of manpower, resources and time.

  1. No nominee is needed for preparing a debtor’s repayment report
  2. No lawyers and accountants is needed for court hearings
  3. There is no need to issue an interim order from court
  4. No creditors meetings in court is needed
  5. No nominee is needed to prepare subsequent repayment arrangements

According to the above information, you can clearly understand how DRP can simplify the application procedures. DRP can also help debtors save a lot of the approval waiting time, and therefore deal with the debt problems in a quicker way. Most importantly, DRP helps to reduce huge and unnecessary administrative fees as well as court fees, to prevent debtor’s financial situation from worsening.

In terms of the risk and success rate, the repayment plan in DRP is drawn up and submitted one by one for individual creditors, therefore, the plan is more specific and targeted. DRP is different from individual voluntary arrangements (IVA) that need to be approved in court and voted to pass. DRP only needs to be directly negotiated and approved, which is relatively low risk with a higher success rate. In addition, DRP is better from the career perspective. For debtors who engage in professional and sensitive industries (such as banking, insurance, finance and Government Disciplined Services etc.), there is no need to notify the employers or supervisors to apply for DRP,  and there is no need to worry about damaging reputation, affecting current jobs or promotion opportunities etc. On the contrary, if you apply for IVA, you need to notify your employers or supervisors.
