Students could get licence refund
TV Licensing is reminding cash-strapped students in West Lothian that they may be entitled to a £50 refund.
Students can claim for any full months left on their licence, so if they bought their licence last October and moved out in May, they could get around £50.50 back.
To qualify, students need to be leaving their halls or rented accommodation and be moving to a licensed address.
Applying for the TV Licence refund is simple and can be done online or over the phone. Students need to have their TV Licence details to hand and evidence to show their licence is no longer needed, such as a copy of the end of their tenancy agreement. Fergus Reid, spokesperson for TV Licensing in Scotland, said: “We’re encouraging all eligible students to take up the refund, which is quick and easy to apply for. It’s important students buy a TV Licence when starting university to take advantage of the flexible payment options and avoid a fine of up to £ 1000.” To arrange a refund or change address, visit www.tvlicensing.co.uk/ studentinfo.
