This note is not part of the rules, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These rules, which come into force on 1 July 2011, amend the Disputes Tribunals Rules 1989. The amendments increase the fees set out in rule 5(1) of the principal rules that are payable to the Tribunal at the time of lodging a claim. The changes reflect the movement in the Consumers Price Index (All Groups) since 1 July 2004.
The fees replaced are inclusive of goods and services tax (GST), but were not amended directly to reflect the 1 October 2010 GST increase, and so differed from those actually charged. The new fees are also GST inclusive.
Date of notification in Gazette: 26 May 2011.
These rules are administered by the Ministry of Justice.
