Applying for a reduced fee for your power of attorney

Apply to pay less to register a lasting or enduring power of attorney.

Applies to England and Wales



You can apply to pay less to register a lasting power of attorney (LPA) or an enduring power of attorney (EPA).

Use this form if you need help with the:

  • £82 application fee to register an LPA or EPA
  • £41 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 above.

If the donor’s income before tax is less than £12,000 a year, you’ll only have to pay half – this is known as a ‘50% remission’.

The form also explains how and when to pay the fees.
