Courts Act 2003

Application of receipts of magistrates’ courts etc.

39.Magistrates’ courts are responsible for collecting fines, fees and other financial orders on behalf of central Government and compensation orders on behalf of victims of crime. Section 60 of the JPA 1997 makes provision for the application of receipts by JCEs. This Act reproduces section 60 with changes  to reflect the fact that the designated officer, rather than the JCE, will be responsible for collecting such sums.
