If you no longer use TV receiving equipment or you’re covered by another licence, our standard policy is to consider refund requests for each complete month left on your TV Licence. This will apply if:
If you do not meet at least one of the above criteria, any refund due will continue to be given in blocks of three complete months.
We have made this change to simplify our policy, and make refunds fairer and easier to understand. We agreed this with the Government as part of the BBC Charter Renewal White Paper in 2016.
You can request a refund online by filling in a short form. We may ask you to supply evidence that supports your claim.
