Episode 12 of the DWD Podcast is with PDASA and gives insights into how PDAs work.

The interesting episode covers:

PDA fees and if they are expensive, if consumers in debt review should use a PDA*, if Debt Counsellors should use one to work out payment plans and help plan the distribution of consumers’ payments towards their various debts and the episode also covers the role of the PDA association (PDASA) in helping consumers.

There are some interesting insights into this side of things that many consumers do not know much about or even think about.

Since many consumers choose to make use of a PDA is is a good idea to educate yourself about their role and how they really work.




* Consumers do not have to use a PDA. Most do but a small number of consumers do not. Some consumers prefer to handle the payment side of things themselves. Talk to your DC about the pros and cons of using a PDA/not and the costs. Please never pay a Debt Counsellors monthly aftercare fees directly to their bank account and not via a PDA as you may get them into trouble with the National Credit Regulator.
