Does the Government owe you £54? How to claim your power of attorney refund



The Government has announced that if you paid a power of attorney registration fee between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2017, you could be due a refund of up to £54.  Estimated to be available to 1.8m people who registered during the four year period, the refund applies to both lasting powers of attorney and enduring powers of attorney.

David Hill, Partner and head of the Private Client team at Mogers Drewett said, “At Mogers Drewett, between 2013 and 2017 we made nearly 700 power of attorney registrations on behalf of our clients and we’re delighted to share that they can now claim back part of their application fee.

“The refund is paid to the donor (the person who made the power of attorney) but the claim can be made by either party – the donor or the attorney (who was appointed by the donor).”
