Hi all just wondering I'm due a 2.5% pay rise next month. And back pay of about £400 which doesn't exceed my 10%as I'm in a joint iva with my wife. Just wondering if it is classed as a windfall or Boness. Or will I have to pay it all over or 50% thanks.

The 10% 50/50 rules does not apply to permanent pay rises -- this is for overtime and bonuses.
Permanent rises are dealt with at the annual review following the rise and an increase if 50% of the net rise due thereafter --- though some IP's try to grab the increase right away. Dig out your proposal and see what yours says about permanent rises.

Just to add it is not a joint IVA but an interlocking one.

It depends on the dates relative to your review. If you get, say, three month back pay in April, that means the pay rise was actually in January and that will be the date they will work from. So, from January until the review should be all yours --- at least that is how my IP treated pay rises, and that is what my proposal said.
