If you also need to file other claims for example you include a claim for non monetary releif ie an injunction you need to budget for an additional £395.00.
Once you issue a claim there may well be additional issues which you need to address. For this you need to issue an application ie seek the court's permission.
Where you put the other side on notice, all applications cost £80.00.
During the case there are also fees payable by the claimant only, for example filing a directions questionnaire, and filing a pre trial checklist £220.00 and £110.00 respectively.
Finally, there is a fee payable by the claimant (multi-track) £1,090 and (fast track) £545
