Cost of justice: court fee increases come into effect

Overview

The motion to implement the Civil Proceedings and Family Proceedings Fees (Amendment) Order 2015 has been debated and approved by the House of Lords, and as of Monday 9 March, new court fees will be payable for claims to recover a sum of money.


The changes are significant - by way of example, a claim with a value of £150,000 currently requires a court fee of £1,115 to be paid. Once the new charges are in place the court fee will substantially increase to £7,500.


In this briefing, Shoosmiths sets out the details of the new fees and discusses the likely next steps.
