Ruling on an application as to whether the appellant’s notice of appeal was filed within two months of being notified of the OFT’s decision pursuant to Rule 8 of the Tribunal’s Rules.

The Tribunal held that, on the balance of probabilities, the OFT’s letter notifying the appellant of its provisional decision to close the case on the basis that it was not an administrative priority was not received until after 28 February 2006 and accordingly, the appeal filed on 28 April 2006 was in time.
