Make an appeal

There are several different types of appeal you can lodge with the tribunal. Each has its own form to fill out and usually a fee to pay.

Appeals can only be accepted if the form is properly completed, the payment is included and it has been received in time.

Make sure you:

  • fill in the correct form for the type of appeal you are making
  • read the form carefully and fill it in fully (some forms require you to sign twice)
  • include the fee, if applicable
  • send the form and payment details promptly.

If your appeal has not been accepted we will write to you and explain why.

The tribunal cannot accept an appeal if the person has no right of appeal.

Appeal forms can be downloaded or you can pick one up between 8:30am and 4:30pm on Monday to Friday at our offices.
