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 2013, amend the Motor Vehicle Sales Regulations 2003 to provide that the fee for applying to commence proceedings before a Motor Vehicle Disputes Tribunal is $50 (inclusive of goods and services tax) on and after 1 July 2013 instead of $51.11 (inclusive of goods and services tax), which was the fee in practice during the period 1 October 2010 to 1 July 2013 owing to an increase in the goods and services tax. The amendments implement changes to civil fees as a result of the civil fees review by the Ministry of Justice.
