How do I apply for a refund if I am found not guilty?

If the owner or responsible person pays the towage and storage costs to recover an impounded vehicle a refund may be payable if a person is acquitted of the impounding offence (and no other person is convicted for the offence), the charge is withdrawn, amended, dismissed or no charge is laid.
