Refund cheque delays
Last week, we experienced an issue that meant we had to stop a significant number of refund cheques from being sent out. This did not affect refunds paid by electronic funds transfer (EFT).
We apologise for the delay. We have fixed the problem and have resumed processing. The majority of these refunds will be delivered by the end of this week.
The date of issue on these cheques is likely to be from the week ending 12 March 2010.
