Introduction

When lodging an application in the European Small Claims Procedure before the Estonian court, the state fee shall be payable at the same time as the national application. The Code of Civil Procedure and the State Fees Act relating to state fees and other procedural expenses are governed by the Code of Civil Procedure. The costs of the state fee and the procedural costs to the court can only be paid by bank transfer.

What charges are applied?

When lodging an application, a state fee must be paid as a court cost.

How much do I have to pay?

When lodging an application in the European Small Claims Procedure before the Estonian Court, the court fee shall be the same as when filing a national application. The amount of the state fee depends on the amount of money required. For example, the state fee of EUR 500 is due for EUR 100, EUR 1 000 on the demand for the largest amount EUR 175, EUR 1 500 on the demand for the largest amount EUR 200 and EUR 2 000 on demand for EUR 225.

What happens if I have to pay the court fees in a timely manner?

The state fee shall be paid in advance when the application is lodged. If the court fee is unpaid, the court gives the claimant the opportunity to pay the state fee within the deadline set by the court. If the court fee is not paid by the deadline set by the court, the court shall refuse to accept the application.

How do I pay the costs of litigation?

The fee can only be paid by bank transfer. Credit cards shall not be accepted. The Ministry of Finance is the beneficiary of the payment for any payments to be made to the courts.

If the state fee is paid in advance, it must be stated as precisely as possible for which action the state fee is paid for. When the State fee is paid through the portal, for example through the Company Registration Portal or through an open electronic file, the payment shall always give rise to a unique reference number linked to the specific claim.

Further information on state fee accounts and reference numbers in courts can be found on the Link opens in new window Courts website.

What do I have to do after the payment has been made?

It is necessary to provide the court with information confirming payment of the state fee, in order for the court to verify the receipt of the state fee. Such data include: the name of the payer, the account of the bank and the account to which the fee was paid was the amount paid. The court can verify the payment by electronic means, as a result of which it is not necessary to issue a payment order proving payment of the state fee. The court may, however, ask it, if necessary.
