Reducing of the state fees
Jurisdiction – ESTONIA
On 1 July 2012 several amendments to the Code of Civil Procedure and State Fees Act took effect. One of the main amendments is the reducing of the state fees. It is noteworthy that the new regulation distinguishes between filing a claim via e-mail (or by post) and through electronic e-file system (www.e-toimik.ee). In the latter case the state fees are lower.
For example, upon filing an action for claiming payment is the amount of EUR 5,000, the state fee is EUR 400 in case the action is filed via e-mail and EUR 325 in case the action is filed through electronic e-file system.
