I don't have a TV, why do I keep getting letters sent to me?

We write to all addresses where there is no TV Licence or a current declaration to say that one isn’t needed.

If you tell us you don't need a TV Licence, we will stop sending you letters. We may confirm this with a visit. We do this because we've found that when we visit and make contact, one in eight people* who say they don’t need a licence actually do need one.

* As at August 2020

Remember, a TV Licence isn’t just for TV sets. It applies to any device.

If you tell us your property is empty, we’ll stop sending letters to your address for up to six months.

If you have just told us you don’t need a licence and then receive a letter from us a day or so after, this is usually because our records are being updated. You don't need to respond.
