The fees for High Court enforcement are set out in law by the Government and have remained unchanged since 2014, despite the Ministry of Justice’s own recommendation that it should be updated annually following the CPI figure for each September (Explanatory Memorandum To The Taking Control Of Goods (Fees) Regulations 2014, paragraph 3.3).

To date, there has been no further review of enforcement fees.

We are committed to campaigning for an increase to the fixed fee elements of High Court enforcement fees. This will:

  • Help High Court enforcement businesses (which are privately owned) to cope with inflation and cost of living increases
  • Encourage prompt settlement of the judgment debt to allow creditors to receive the money that is owed to them

In order for enforcement businesses to maintain the level of investment and high standard of services offered to creditors and to judgment debtors, our members consider that it is essential that fees are reviewed in accordance with the guidance and commitment made by the Ministry of Justice.

We are proactively engaging with the Ministry of Justice about this issue.
