  • Does TasNetworks offer refunds in relation to new connections?

    TasNetworks will provide a refund of application fee, design deposit or capital contribution under the following conditions:

    If you cancel the connection application prior to design work commencing (after paying the design deposit);
    If the capital contribution cost is less than design deposit originally paid; or
    If you have paid the design deposit but your design work is deemed unnecessary.

    Note - All of the above scenarios will trigger a refund process that does not require any action on your part. The process will result in the generation of a refund cheque which will be sent to your postal address as captured in the application (all refunds are paid by cheque regardless of the original payment method used).
