What are the disadvantages of DAS?
  • The Debt Arrangement Scheme, like any debt management product, may affect your credit rating.
  • If you enter into a DAS then your details will be recorded on the DAS register. This is a register which can be accessed free of charge. Creditors and credit reference agencies check this register on a regular basis and may update your credit file to reflect this information.
  • While you have a Debt Payment Program under DAS, you will not normally be able to access additional credit. There are exemptions to this which your money adviser can further explain.
