Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 11 October 2013, amend the District Courts Fees Regulations 2009. The amendments prescribe—

  • a new fee of $100 for filing an application under section 56 of the Trans-Tasman Proceedings Act 2010 to register in a District Court under subpart 5 of Part 2 of that Act a registrable Australian judgment; and

  • a new fee of $250 for filing specified applications under that Act that relate to registered Australian judgments.

The new filing fees are both inclusive of goods and services tax. The amendments also ensure that no fee is payable for filing an interlocutory application under rule 16 (review of Registrar's decision on application to register Australian judgment) of the Trans-Tasman Proceedings Regulations and Rules 2013.
