It is alleged that the Clients Account may be empty with client monies gone into a “black hole”. We understand that employees of Smooth Financial were told by text message of today’s news and that they should not attend the Smooth office. It is understood employees may not have been paid and the owner of the company may currently be abroad.

Have a Debt Management Plan or IVA with Smooth Financial?

We can help.

2011 saw the collapse of Apex DCM and with it, the emotional turmoil of thousands of people across the UK.  In June 2013, Debt Help Direct hit the headlines as they were shut down and their director John Taylor-Groom was arrested.  On both occasions, ClearDebt, as an ethical debt solutions company and member of trade association, the Debt Resolution Forum, offered all former clients of Apex DCM and Debt Help Direct the opportunity to call our teams for free advice.  Due to the emotional and distressing situation for those affected, we offered this solution free of charge.  Should an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) have been the most appropriate solution, standard protocol fees applied.

In the case of the collapse of Apex DCM, ClearDebt offered advice to over 1000 clients that were affected by their closure. Of the advice offered 47% of the people we spoken to were offered a debt solution with ClearDebt of which 62% are now successfully in a Plan with us, paying their debt off and working towards a debt free future.

Smooth Financial IVA –  Individual Voluntary Arrangements

If any client of Smooth Financial would be better off entering into an Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA), where all interest and charges can be frozen and a significant proportion of debts written off, usually over five years, standard IVA Protocol fees will apply. We will be assessing clients circumstances with this in mind. If the most appropriate solution is an IVA, IVA fees will be chargeable but these will make no difference to the monthly payment you can afford, as long as you complete the IVA.
