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 Judicature Act 1908 (the Act). They amend sheriffs' fees regulations made under the Act. The sheriffs' fee for every warrant on writ of sale, writ of arrest, attachment, or other process is adjusted to reflect the movement in the New Zealand Consumers Price Index (All Groups) since 1 July 2004.
The fee replaced is inclusive of goods and services tax (GST), but was not amended directly to reflect the 1 October 2010 GST increase, and so differed from that actually charged. The new fee is also GST inclusive.
