Scottish court fees 2018-2021: consultation

Consultation on proposals to raise fees in the Scottish Civil Courts over the next three years in line with inflation.


1. The Sheriff Appeal Court or the Court of Session may only grant permission if the Court considers that (a) the appeal would raise an important point of principle or practice, or (b) there is some other compelling reason for the Court of Session to hear the appeal. For a recent example of where this test was not met by a proposed second appeal see Mitchell v Somerville [2017] CSIH 60.
