Business Debt

There are often significant costs associated with running a business, and as a result, debts can mount. This can include loan debt, invoice debt, tax debt and more.

Gambling Debt

Although gambling can be a fun leisure activity for some people, for others it leads to serious addiction. In turn, this can result in gambling debts that cause major financial problems.

Credit Card Debt

Using credit cards can result in a buildup of credit card debt, and if you fail to make payments on time, you can find yourself in credit card debt arrears. Different rules apply to different types of credit, so it’s important to know the facts when you are facing specific debts.

Council Tax Debt

If you have missed council tax payments, you will be in debt to your local council. Council tax debt differs from other types of debt in key respects, so it’s essential that you know what to expect if you find yourself in this situation.

Payday Loan

As their name suggests, these short-term financial agreements are designed to be taken out and repaid by payday. However, if you fail to repay them in this way, you could quickly find the interest and charges mount up.

BNPL debts are outstanding balances associated with BNPL financial agreements. Although when paid on time, BNPL agreements don’t typically come with fees or interest, if you fail to stick to the terms, you could face late fees and extra costs.

Student Loans Debt

Student loan debt is the amount you have to repay when you have finished your studies and started working. It works differently to other types of debt. For example, it has repayment requirements and safeguards that make it more manageable than standard loans.

Utility Bills Debt

Utility bills include all the essential services you use in your home, such as electricity, gas, water, council tax and TV license. Utility bill debts occur when you fail to keep up with your payments of these bills.

Debit Card Debt

Debit card debt refers to money you owe to the provider of your debit card. Although this type of debt is considered to be less common than many other forms of debt because of the ways in which people tend to use their debit cards, it does happen.

Secured Loan

A secured loan allows you to borrow money against an asset of value, which could be anything from a property to a car.

Rent Arrears

Rent arrears occur when you fall behind on your rent payments as a tenant. This could be to either a housing association or a private landlord. This type of debt is considered to be a priority debt.

Car Finance Loan

A type of non-priority debt, car finance is related to the loan or lease purchase of a vehicle.

Energy Bill Debts

Energy bill debts are any debts associated with the energy usage in your home, such as all lights and appliances like TV’s, computers, and refrigerators.

Water Bills
