Frequently asked questions, with answers
We are committed to ensuring that our conduct is fair and appropriate. Therefore, if a mistake is identified, we will look to put it right and ensure that it doesn't happen again.
Following a review of an account you hold/previously held, we have identified that we made a mistake.
Your letter/email explains the reason why we are issuing a refund, however, if you would like more information, please get in touch using the contact details at the bottom of this FAQ article.
We need to make sure we have the most up-to-date information for you so that we can make sure your refund cheque is correctly addressed to you. This avoids unnecessary delays in getting your refund cheque out to you if any of your information has changed
You can send copies of your documents via email or post. If you need further help with getting your documents to us, please get in touch using the contact details at the bottom of this FAQ article.
Whilst the account holder has passed away, a refund is still owed. Therefore, we have contacted you to identify the personal representative of the late account holder in order to issue a refund.
If you are not the personal representative, but you do know who they are, please could you direct the letter to them.
I received a letter/email asking me to confirm I am the personal representative before you will send my cheque to me why?
We need to make sure we are sending out a cheque to the correct individual which would be the personal representative of the late account holder.

No, as you are the named account holder and to protect your payment from fraud, we will need to make your cheque payable to you.
We are sorry, but we are unable to arrange a bank transfer. Your refund will need to be issued by cheque.
For further clarity, we have added some additional explanations below for you, if you need any further help, please contact us using the details at the bottom of this FAQ.
Your refund is made up of interest and/or late payment fees that were charged in relation to the mistake that we made.
Where a refund of interest is due, we have also added any associated Compound Interest.
Where a refund of any late payment fees is due, we have also added any interest charged on those fees.
Compound Interest is a phrase that is used regularly by banks, especially with regards to savings and debts. It means interest charged on top of interest.
Your usual monthly interest charges when shopping with Studio are calculated using your agreed interest rate as part of the compound interest calculation.
In the case of this refund, we have made sure to fairly recalculate your compound interest within the affected period and factored this into the amount of your refund where it was necessary.
As part of the calculations for your refund, we made sure to identify if your account balance would have been in credit (Notional Credit Position), had this mistake not happened.
If your balance would have been in credit, we have made sure to add further compensatory interest onto the refund amount to compensate you for any lost interest.
Compensatory Interest is the standard rate of interest that can be applied by businesses in the UK in relation to money being owed. This interest is applied at an annual rate of 8%.
Where any refunds of historic interest and fees would mean your balance would have been in credit at the time we applied the charges, we have also added compensatory interest on that credit balance (this is an additional 8% interest).
We are obliged to deduct 20% tax from any compensatory interest applied. If you pay tax at a different rate to the basic rate or if you are a non-UK taxpayer and wish to request a refund from HMRC, please contact us and we will provide you with the exact deducted value.
Please note, the tax deduction is not 20% of your total refund value, compensatory interest will only make up part of your full refund value.
