If I was to receive a compensation pay out is there a percentage I’m allowed to keep or does all it go into the IVA?

It would depend on what it was for.

Most (but not all) IP's follow the procedure used in bankruptcy. Compensation for pain and suffering is allowed to be retained whilst compensation for loss of earnings is not. IP's not following this will treat the whole claim as a windfall and take all of it if the payout exceeds £500.

If the compensation is something like replacing like for like, they will usually allow you to use the funds for the replacement, depending on what it is and the values involved.
