Hotel, restaurant and pub operators are set to be able to claim refunds from Phonographic Performance Ltd (PPL) following a successful appeal against recorded music tariffs.

Claim forms are now being sent to PPL-licensed properties after the Copyright Tribunal ruled last October that tariff increases dating back to 2005-06 had been "unreasonable". Businesses which paid excess charges during the period are now set to claim a share of £15m, following the appeal by the British Hospitality Association (BHA) and British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA).

It is estimated future annual savings for the hospitality industry will be around £5m, with recorded music tariffs comprising CD players, televisions and radios. BHA deputy chief executive Martin Couchman said: "This successful result shows, once again, the importance of having a strong trade association to defend the industry's interests."

BBPA chief executive Brigid Simmonds added: "We fought long and hard for these reduced charges and refunds, so we want to ensure that pubs claim what they are owed in full."
