How much does it cost to file a claim for payment in court?

Service

In a situation where the resulting dispute over payment could not be settled amicably, the only thing left to do is bring the case to court. Please note that filing a claim for payment is not free. The rates of fees are regulated in the Act of 28 July 2005 on court costs in civil cases and depend on the procedure in which our claim will be pursued.

Filing a claim in ordinary court proceedings

In this mode of pursuing claims, the court fee is calculated on the indicated value of the subject of the dispute and amounts to 5%.

Example 1.

If we reach PLN 20,000 - the fee will be PLN 1,000.

The value of the subject of the dispute is given in zlotys, rounded up to the nearest whole zloty.

Filing a claim for payment in a writ of payment

In this mode of pursuing claims, the court fee is 1/4 of the proportional fee, ie 1/4 of the fee in ordinary court proceedings.

Example 2.

If we reach PLN 20,000 - the fee will be PLN 250.

Filing a statement of claim in simplified proceedings

All cases for payment will be referred to this procedure, the value of which does not exceed PLN 10,000 (obligatory). In this proceeding, the fees depend on the value of the subject matter of the dispute, but they are defined in terms of rates and not percentages. They are respectively:

  • PLN 100, if the value of the disputed amount requested in the lawsuit is in the range of PLN 2,000 - PLN 5,000,
