Further to our earlier briefings [1], a number of further changes to courts and tribunals fees took effect from Monday 25 July.  These include:

  • a general uplift on certain civil court fees of 10% (including the fee for starting proceedings for any remedy other than the recovery of a sum of money or the recovery of land, judicial review, determination of costs, enforcement)
  • in the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber), a simplification of the existing structure in relation to issue and hearing fees (£100 and £200 respectively) and the introduction of a new fee of £20 for rents and pitch fee review applications
  • reducing the fee in the employment tribunals to make an appeal against a penalty for failure to pay a tribunal award and to make a claim under the Posted Workers (Enforcement of Employment Rights) Regulations 2016.
