FEES 4.3.7RRP

FEES 2.3.1RRP

FEES 2.3.2RRP
If it appears to the FSA, or FOS Ltd (in relation to any FOS case fee only), that in the exceptional circumstances of a particular case to which FEES 2.3.1R does not apply, the retention by the FSA, or FOS Ltd, as relevant, of a fee or FOS levy which has been paid would be inequitable, the FSA, or FOS Ltd, may (unless FEES 2.3.2B R applies)1 refund all or part of that fee or levy.
FEES 2.3.2AGRP
1A poor estimate or forecast by a fee payer, when providing information relevant to an applicable tariff base, is unlikely, of itself, to amount to an exceptional circumstance for the purposes of FEES 2.3.1 R or FEES 2.3.2 R.

FEES 2.3.2BRRP

FEES 2.2.3GRP
