Fees for Upper Tribunal judicial review applications rise again
Fees for judicial review applications hare risen yet again from today, Monday 25 July 2016. A new fees order was quietly laid last Friday: The Civil Proceedings, First-tier Tribunal, Upper Tribunal and Employment Tribunals Fees (Amendment) Order 2016. The fees going up are for the permission stage and they rise by 10%. Other fees remain as they were.
There is no convenient and accessible list of the different fees for Upper Tribunal judicial review applications, so I thought it might be useful to put them together into a blog post. Why the Upper Tribunal cannot do this on their website I do not really know, but it turns out the President does attach a schedule of fees to the case of R (on the application of Spahiu & Anor) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (Judicial review – amendment – principles (IJR)  UKUT 230 (IAC). That will of course be out of date from next Monday.
A simplified and updated version of that table is reproduced below for convenience:
|Description||Old fee||New fee|
|Permission to apply for judicial review (or permission to proceed if not begun by JR procedure)||£140||£154|
|Application reconsider a refusal of permission||£350||£385|
|To proceed to a full hearing if permission is granted (to be paid within 7 days of service of the order granting permission)||£700 (£350 if reconsideration fee already paid)||£770 (£385 if reconsideration fee already paid)|
|On an application on notice where no other fee is specified||£255||£255|
|On an application by consent or without notice where no other fee is specified (not payable in relation to an application by consent for an adjournment of a hearing where the application is received by the Tribunal at least 14 days before the date set for that hearing)||£100||£100|
|On an application for a summons or order for a witness to attend the Tribunal||£50||£50|
|On a request for a copy of a document filed for the purposes of immigration judicial review proceedings in the Tribunal||£10 for 10 pages or less then 50p per page||£10 for 10 pages or less then 50p per page|
|On a request for a copy of a document on a computer disk or in other electronic form, for each such copy.||£10||£10|
If it looks like the table has any mistakes or omissions, let me know and I will update.
