Why Was My PCO Licence Application Refused?

It is important that you take the time to read through the reason or reasons for the refusal and if you feel that they have the wrong information or have got something wrong or did something that wasn’t fair in regards to your PCO licence application; make sure that you do not wait and put forward your appeal against the refusal as soon as you can.
What Happens To My Application Fees If I’m Refused?
If your application for a PCO licence is refused and this is upheld even after an appeal, you will only receive a partial refund. This amount is what is known as the “grant of licence” which of the total £306 you spent, only comes to £105. This is due to the fact that the CRB fees and the PCO application fees are completely non-refundable.
