POWER OF ATTORNEY REGISTRATION FEE REFUND – are you eligible?

/ 0 Comments

The Government has announced that due to a reduction in operating costs, you could be entitled to a refund if you registered a Lasting Power of Attorney or Enduring Power of Attorney between April 2013 & March 2017.

If you didn’t benefit from the reduction in fees, your claim will depend on the registration date & will be in the region of £34 – £54 plus interest at a rate of 0.5%

If eligible you will need to make your claim by 31 January 2021.

Who can claim a refund?

  • the person who made the power of attorney (Donor)
  • the individual appointed by the donor in an LPA or EPA to make decisions on their behalf (Attorney)

The refund must be paid to the Donor & you only need to make one claim per donor, even if you made more than one power of attorney.
