2. Court fees

The court fee is based on the amount you’re claiming, plus interest.

Using Money Claim Online will be cheaper than sending a claim form to the County Court Money Claims Centre.

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 & 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.
