Hi Aldo
Your options will really depend on whether you have any income at all. It sounds from what you have said that you have not. That being the case and given that you owe £15k I would suggest that you could consider a debt management plan but that would require you to maintain monthly payments of at least £100. If that is simply not possible then the alternative you could consider is bankruptcy. This would mean that all the debt is written off after a year. It would not affect your self employed status but there are implications if you are a home owner.
