RATES OF COURT FEE IN 2019
From January 01, 2019 according to the Law of Ukraine “On Court Fees” and the Law of Ukraine “On the State Budget of Ukraine for 2019” court fees are changed.
A court fee is a fee that is collected throughout the territory of Ukraine for filing applications, complaints to court, for issuing court documents, as well as in case of adoption of individual court decisions. A court fee is included in legal costs.
The court fee is collected in the appropriate amount of the minimum living wage for the able-bodied persons established by law as of January 01 of the calendar year when the corresponding application or complaint is filed to court, - as a percentage of the price of the claim and in a fixed amount.
In accordance with the Law of Ukraine “On the State Budget of Ukraine for 2019” from January 01, 2019 the minimum living wage per one able-bodied person is set at UAH 1921.
Thus, the court fee rate in case of a claim of property character, which is filed by a legal entity, shall be 1,5 % of the amount of the claim, but not less than 1 minimum living wage for the able-bodied persons and not more than 350 minimum living wages for the able-bodied persons: that is, minimum UAH 1921, and maximum – UAH 672 350.
If the application is filed by an individual or an individual entrepreneur, then the rate is calculated as 1 percent of the amount of the claim, but not less than 0,4 of the amount of the minimum living wage for the able-bodied persons and not more than 5 minimum living wages for the able-bodied persons: that is minimum UAH 768,40 and maximum UAH 9,605.
If a legal entity files a claim of non-property character, it shall pay UAH 1,921, and if an individual or an individual entrepreneur - UAH 768,40.
