Overpaid Power of Attorney fees? How to claim a refund.

If you made an application to register a Lasting Power of Attorney or an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) at the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) between 1st April 2013 and 31st March 2017, you are now entitled to a partial refund of the fee. You may also be entitled to interest on what you are owed. The amount you can claim back is between £45 – £54. You can make a claim if you are the person who made the power of attorney (the donor) or if you are an attorney appointed in the power of attorney.

There are two ways to claim the refund. You can claim online by visiting https://www.gov.uk/power-of-attorney-refund and click “claim a refund online” or you can call the refunds helpline on 0300 456 0300 and choose option 6. Claims take approximately 12 weeks to process.
