Lasting or enduring power of attorney fee: exemption or remission
Apply to pay less (an exemption or a remission) to register a lasting or enduring power of attorney.
Use this form if you need help with the:
- £110 application fee to register a lasting power of attorney (LPA) or an enduring power of attorney (EPA)
- £55 repeat application fee to register an LPA or EPA
If the person who made the LPA or EPA (the donor) receives certain means-tested benefits when you apply to register it, you won’t have to pay anything (this is called an ‘exemption’). The benefits are listed in the form.
If the donor’s income before tax is less than £12,000 a year, you will only have to pay half (this is known as a ‘50 per cent remission’).
The form also explains how and when to pay the fees.
