In 2017 the Ministry of Justice announced that refunds would be offered for anyone charged £110 as opposed to £82 for each registration, between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017.
The refund scheme has now been launched.
Claims for full and partial refunds can be made by the Donor or the Attorney online – it takes only 10 minutes.
You will need:
- the full names and addresses of the Donor and Attorney
- the OPG reference number is preferable
- the bank account details for the refund to be received
The Ministry of Justice confirmed that the number of applications eligible for refund is approximately 1.7 million.
