Competition Markets Authority
There are a wide range of contracts that have been affected due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This statement builds on and replaces the statement published by the CMA on 30 April 2020.
The CMAs view remains that a consumer will generally be entitled to a refund when they have paid money in advance for services or goods that cannot be provided because of the coronavirus pandemic.
As the circumstances and public health measures relating to the pandemic have developed over time, we have updated the statement to cover additional issues.
