How does the end of an IVA work if your IVA has been extended? Mine initially was 5 years and then I was allowed to have some of a large PPI payment back, I'm in the final few months and have no idea when I'm likely to receive my completion certificate, or if at 6 years I'll automatically be removed from the insolvency register?
Noone seems to be able to answer these questions.

Depending on which company you are with, it can take up to six months for your completion to come through. You won't come off the register until 3 months afterwards. You may have to complete a final review just to tie any loose ends up.

It will be the same as any other conclusion, just delayed in your case. There will be a final review to make sure any income has not been missed. The case will then be checked internally and final dividends distributed to creditors --- this usually takes around three months, but can take up to 6 (sometimes beyond). Some firms manage this within a few weeks.
