Crime news: revised AGFS fee calculator and paper forms

New fee calculator and paper forms for Crown Court work under the Advocates’ Graduated Fee Scheme (AGFS).


We’ve published a new fee calculator and paper forms for AGFS work in the Crown Court.

These reflect the new way of calculating criminal advocate payments for Crown Court legal aid work.

Paper forms should only be used when the Crown Court online billing system is not available.
