In this section you will find links to the current schedule of fees and information on how to apply to waive, postpone or remit fees. All fees are GST exempt.

The amount of the fee that you will pay will depend on the nature of the service to be provided. For example, if you are issuing a subpoena you will pay the fee found at item 14 in the Schedule of fees. If you are commencing an appeal in the court the amount of the fee will depend on the class and type of appeal. For example, if you are commencing a tree dispute proceeding the amount of the fee will be found at item 4 of the Schedule of fees.

Information about how to waive, postpone or remit court fees is available at Waiver, postponement or remission of court fees.
