Merger fees payment information

Details

Most mergers which are investigated by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and those which qualify for a reference to phase 2 are subject to a fee, irrespective of whether a reference is made. The fee is payable when the CMA makes its phase 1 merger decision.

Fees vary according to the value of the UK turnover of the business being acquired.
