As part of an IVA can I pay back more than the total of my consolidated debts? My IVA should finish in July by which time I will have paid 96% of my total debts and been in IVA for 6 years. I can’t release equity from property to make up remaining 4% is it reasonable to continue payments for further 12 months?

You will never pay back more than your original total debt plus fees and possible statutory interest. Have a word with your IP to ask what is going to happen in July.

As long as the total you repay, as Kallis says, doesn't hit 100% of original debt, plus fees the equity extension will be applied as per the originally agreed terms. If you hit this figure part way through the extension, the IVA will end early.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.
