Prioritising your debts

If you’re missing payments due to a short term issue, you could consider temporarily focusing on paying any debts that are closer to defaulting to avoid the impact this could have on your credit file. Then, once everything is back to normal, you can return to making all of your normal repayments.

But, if you don’t feel you’ll be able to get back on track soon, you may need to consider prioritising some debts over others. For example, if you have finance for a car you need to get to work, you may want to focus on keeping up the repayments there even if that were to mean defaulting on another agreement.
