Phase 2 of court fee refund scheme now open
Applications are now open for anyone who believes they may have paid too much for some court services.
The second phase of the court refund scheme is now live.
Applications are now open for anyone who believes they may have paid too much for some court services, including low-value personal injury claims and copy fees for electronic copies of HMCTS documents. The eligibility for the first phase, announced in January 2020, has also been extended to cover incorrect fees paid up to July 2018.
This scheme was established to help users claim a refund for fees paid where the wrong fee was charged or incorrectly set.
Court fee levels are reviewed annually as part of ongoing wider work to drive improvements across the justice system.
More details on the cases affected and how to apply can be found on GOV.UK.
