Court fees payable in relation to a licensing appeal to a magistrates’ court are prescribed by The Magistrates’ Courts Fee Order 2008, SI 2008/1052. The fees payable under that order have been amended at irregular intervals by The Magistrates’ Courts Fees (Amendment) Orders 2009, SI 2009/1496, The Magistrates’ Courts Fees (Amendment) Orders 2013, SI 2013/1409, The Magistrates’ Courts Fees (Amendment) Orders 2014, SI 2014/875, The Court of Protection, Civil Proceedings and Magistrates’ Court Fees (Amendment) Order 2018, SI 2018/812, and The Court Fees (Miscellaneous Amendments) Order 2019, SI 2019/1063.
