Pay by credit or debit card if you’re using Money Claim Online.
If you use the claim form, pay with a postal order or cheque (payable to ‘HM Courts and Tribunals Service’).
You may have to pay more fees later on - eg if there’s a court hearing, or you need to get a judgment enforced.
You may be able to claim the costs back if you win the case.
