Supreme Court of Western Australia

Reduced Fees

Form 1

Small business and non-profit associations pay reduced fees. You will need to complete and submit Form 1 (Declaration that a person is a small business or non-profit association) to qualify as a small business or non-profit association. Form 1 is available for download or from the Supreme Court Registry.

Form 2

Eligible individuals and entities also pay reduced fees. An individual or entity may be considered eligible for a fee reduction if they are the holder of a Government issued concession card, on the grounds of financial hardship or in the interests of justice. You can apply to the court for a reduced fee by submitting a Form 2 (Application to Reduce Fee). The Form 2 is available for download on the website, or from the Supreme Court Registry.

Individuals who successfully apply for a reduced fee will pay the fee of an eligible individual. Eligible individuals will pay 30% of the individual fee, with the amount capped at $100. Entities which successfully apply for a reduced fee will pay the fee of an eligible entity.

Fee deferrals may still apply in limited matters, including personal injury claims.

You can find further information in the Supreme Court (Fees) Regulations 2002 (WA).
