Further changes to County Court Fees

County Court fees are on the rise again!  It seems these will mainly affect claims over £10,000, as the fee will now be in the form of a percentage of the total claim rather than a fixed fee. The table below demonstrates the new structure now in place.

This will of course have a knock on effect to defendants, as they will have to reimburse any fees a successful claimant has paid. This could become costly for all dealers, but might be a brake on claimants to ensure they stay under the £10,000 mark, to avoid these higher fees.
