This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2011, are made under the Lawyers and Conveyancers Act 2006 (the Act). They amend Disciplinary Tribunal regulations made under the Act. The fees payable for appeals and applications involving the Disciplinary Tribunal are adjusted to reflect the movement in the New Zealand Consumers Price Index (All Groups) since those regulations came into force on 1 August 2008.
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 regulations are administered by the Ministry of Justice.
