I'm 3 years into my iva and I was reading someone's story about how they got a cash settlement accepted before the iva ended my question is is there a % of debt you have to go by for example if you owe £20000 would it be acceptable to offer £5000

It is usually your remaining payments (plus 12 months if you have an equity release clause) although sometimes a creditor will accept less.

It is also a full and final payment, not a settlement as this means you pay back 100p in the pound plus fees and possible statutory interest.

There is no accepted percentage, but the usual aim for a full and final is to pay creditors what they are expecting under the arrangement. This can be rounded down a little depending on the initial dividend estimate.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
