TV License: You could be eligible for a refund worth up to £159 – how to check

Tv License will work it out by “looking carefully at the information you give us and let you know if we can offer you a refund, and how much it will be.” 

The body bases its refund calculations on when the licence was issued, its expiry date, and when they can show they don’t need it.

It then states that it “aims to process and issue the refund within 21 days of receiving the application.”

Although the BBC is responsible for managing the licence fee, the Government sets any deals, concessions or discounts.
