Child Maintenance and Enforcement Commission v Beesley & Anor [2010] EWCA Civ 1344 (24 November 2010)

NRP entered into IVA under which his creditors would receive a total of 27p in the pound over a period of 5 years in full and final settlement of his liabilities. 94% of his debts were represented by arrears of child maintenance. High Court held that CMEC was a creditor for the purposes of the IVA. CMEC appealed. Court of Appeal held that CMEC was not a creditor, and was therefore not capable of being bound by the IVA.
