  • After being let off court or tribunal fees?  Remission they call it. You can now apply on line. Go to GOVERNMENT.UK. Alternatively apply on form EX160 to the court or tribunal office concerned.
  •  Applying for bankruptcy or the winding up of a company has become more expensive for applications made on or after 21 July 2016. That's because of a rise in the deposit which has to be paid for the work of the official receiver. On a bankruptcy application by a debtor, the deposit is up from £525 to £550. Where a creditor is after making their debtor bankrupt, the deposit rises from £825 to £990. But on a creditor's winding up petition against a company the deposit will increase from £1,350 to £1,600.
