The Court fees schedule has been amended by the Civil Proceedings Fees (Amendment No 2) Order 2014, SI 2014/1834, to address two incorrect fees. The amendments will come into force on 4 August 2014.
SI 2014/1834 amends the Court fees schedule, contained in Sch 1 to the Civil Proceedings Fees Order 2008, SI 2008/1053. These amendments are to correct a defect in SI 2013/2302 and are 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(a) (County Court enforcement in cases other than County Court Business Centre cases) has been reduced from £100 to £70
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.
