New Schedule of Fees from 1 July 2013
Increases to the Supreme Court's filing fees in civil cases were announced today. The increases are detailed in the Civil Procedure Amendment (Fees) Regulation 2013 and the new fees take effect from 1 July 2013.
The Court has updated its Forms and Fees page to reflect the new fees.
The Court will continue to accept payments by cheque under the previous fee regime if the cheque was drawn on 2 July 2012 (the first business day after the new fees take effect), or earlier. However, for payments made by cash or credit card, the new fee will apply from 1 July 2013 (the Regulation's commencement date).
The Regulation can all be read in full on the NSW Legislation website.
