Unsure if you’re due a refund?
You can only claim a refund if:
- You paid the fee straight to the court
- Someone put a claim against you, and you were ordered to pay their fees
Only 16 fees have been identified, and if you’ve been charged inadvertently for one of them, you could be due a refund. The fees are outlined in the Refund Scheme guidance document.
Applications are said to be processed within 20 working days from the day it is received by Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service..
