Refunds on Online Membership Fee Payments
The HGFA recognises that membership payments, particularly those made through the online services, may for valid reasons wish to be recalled by the applicant member.
The following policy will govern any refund application.
The HGFA will consider all membership fee refund requests on an individual basis.
Any request for a refund of membership fees must be made in writing to the HGFA Office either by letter or email.
If an application for refund of membership fees is received within 14 days of the payment being lodged to the HGFA then:
A full refund of the amount paid less $50 administration fee will be returned to the applicant member.
If an application for refund of membership fees is received after 14 days of payment being lodged to the HGFA then:
The application will require approval from the HGFA General Manager.
If the application is approved then the following formula will be used to calculate the refund amount:
$25 x months remaining of term of membership not including the month in which the refund application was made.
If the application is not approved then a letter/email will be provided to the applicant outlining the reason(s) why the application was unsuccessful.
No refund for membership fees will be given to a member who has received a previous refund of membership fees and who then subsequently takes membership at a future time irrespective of how early the second request for refunding membership fees occurs.
Any membership fee refund approved by the HGFA will be paid to the applicant member within 4 weeks of receipt of the written claim from the application member.
The written application for refund of membership fees must include:
brief reason for why the refund is being requested
date which the online payment was made to the HGFA
details of the account to which the refund should be transferred (BSB, Account Name, Account Number)
Refunds of membership fees will only be made by bank transfer into a nominated account.
This agreement does not remove the right for an applicant being denied a refund of membership fees to take further action under Australia’s consumer protection laws.
