Employer: How to request a refund
Refunds can be requested for either:
- An invoice that has been paid more than once in error; or
- A credit note, where the related invoice has already been paid
Go into the Techscheme tab in your Myschemes hub and click on Payments. Invoices and credit notes that are eligible for a refund will have a “Request Refund” button next to them (as illustrated below). If you believe you should be able to request a refund for an invoice or credit note but a Request Refund button is not visible, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note you should only request a refund for an invoice if you have paid this in error or more than once. If an order has been cancelled, you need to request a refund for the related credit note generated and not the original invoice. If an order has not yet been cancelled, you will need to do this before requesting a refund.
After clicking the Request Refund button, a form is displayed. Please complete the form then click Create Refund Request.
Once you have submitted a request you can see the status of the refund in the Refunds section of Myschemes within the Techscheme tab.
Please note: Refunds can take up to 10 working days to be processed and a refund will only be issued to the value an account is in credit. Refunds will not be processed where monies are owed to us, either in total or as a result of the requested refund. If the refund cannot be processed, we will be in touch with you to discuss the reasons why.
