Debt Arrangement Scheme Pros and Cons 

As with all schemes, there are good things about DAS and there are bad things. Let’s go through the arrangement scheme pros and cons;

Pros

  • You can streamline your debts so that you only pay one monthly payment instead of having multiple creditor and multiple payment dates.
  • The scheme freezes all interest on the debts included in it. It also stops charges and fees being applied. At the end of the scheme these additional costs are written off.
  • Your creditors are not allowed to contact you and ask for more money by law. Once the scheme is in place you may get the odd letter at the beginning but this should phase itself out very quickly.
  • You can include household bills that have gotten out of hand too. This can include utilities and council tax arrears.
  • Peace of mind. Knowing that your debts are under control and manageable again gives you back the quality of life that you had before the debts starting to take over.

Cons 

  • Your payments are made over a longer period of time than you agreed to when you first took out the loan. Your debts will be getting out, but as a result you will be paying for longer than you first anticipated.
  • It may damage your credit score in the long term. This links into having to pay for longer. Because you are making reduced payments this means that your credit score will be affected for as long as it is in place.
  • If you do not keep up with the agreed payments then the offer of the arrangement scheme can be withdrawn. This means that because you broke the terms of the arrangement then you could be liable for backdated interest, charges and fees and end up in a worse position than you started.
  • Your name will have to go on a public register. This means that, should someone in the public want details about your financial status, they can obtain it quite easily and lawfully.

What is DAS?

So, what is DAS? Debt arrangement schemes, or DAS, is a management scheme that is endorsed by the Scottish Government.

  • It entails you working with a money advisor, also known as a DAS Administrator, to work out how much you can realistically afford to pay your creditors each month.
  • Once this figure and a time frame has been agreed by your creditors you will pay one monthly payment to your DAS Administrator who will then pay your creditors accordingly.
  • The DAS Administrator will also take a monthly payment for themselves out of it. This will continue for as long as it takes to pay off the debts.
  • Once the DAS has been completed, any accrued interest will be written off and you are free to start building your credit score up again.
