Reforming Fees in the United Kingdom Supreme Court

Closed 27 Nov 2023

Opened 16 Oct 2023


This consultation proposes a series of reforms to the fees payable in the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. These reforms will secure additional resources that will go directly towards supporting the Supreme Court’s operation. In doing so, this will support the Supreme Court in its important constitutional role as the final court of appeal in the United Kingdom. The aims of these proposals are:

  • to ensure a straightforward system for applicants to understand and the Supreme Court to administer
  • to raise income from Supreme Court users that will contribute towards operating costs
  • to support the long-term financial stability of the Supreme Court
  • to ensure the fees in the Supreme Court do not prevent access to justice
