Another amendment to the Court fees schedule

Another amendment to the Court fees schedule

The Court fees schedule has been amended yet again by the Civil Proceedings Fees (Amendment No 3) Order 2014, SI 2014/2059. These amendments correct the previous amendments to the schedule by SI 2014/1834 (see our post here). Both SI 2014/1834 and SI 2014/2059 come into force today - Monday 4 August 2014.

The combined effect of SI 2014/1834 and SI 2014/2059 is as follows:

  • fee 3.5 (applications under the Companies Act 1985, the Companies Act 2006 or the Insolvency Act 1986) has been increased from £160 to £280
  • fee 8.1 (County Court enforcement) has been amended as follows:
    • County Court Business Centre cases or cases in which a warrant of control is requested (in accordance with CPR PD 7E, para 11.2) are subject to a fee of £70
    • other cases are subject to a fee of £100
  • the definition of 'excluded benefits' in Sch 2 of SI 2008/1053, dealing with remissions and part remissions of fees, has also been amended to include benefits based upon the Social Care (Self-directed Support) Scotland Act 2013
