Check that all the details on the form are correct using the guidelines and that you meet
the eligibility requirements below.
Claims can only be accepted if you are recorded on the Tribunal decision as attending and
giving evidence at the Tribunal.
We are unable to accept claims where correction fluid (e.g. Tippex) has been used. If you
do make a mistake on your claim, please cross through the figure and insert your initials
next to the error. Any claims where correction fluid has been used will be returned to the
claimant for them to resubmit.
Any forms that have been completed incorrectly will be returned for correction and may
delay payment, so please ensure you fill in the form with as much detail as possible and
please double check the form before sending it back.
You must ensure that you fill in the total amount claimed correctly.
Please do not fax or email your form to us as we require original hard copies that have
been signed.
Please enclose all receipts with the claim form. Without receipts, the claim cannot
be paid.
Any expenses claimed that are found to be fraudulent will be sent back to you.
Claims must be submitted within 30 days of the Tribunal Hearing. Any claims submitted
after 30 days will require justification in writing and may be refused.
Please allow up to three weeks for payment.
