Section 85: Fees

279.Section 85 enables the Commission, with the consent of the Secretary of State, to make provision for the payment of a fee in relation to certain registration functions under Chapter 2 and other prescribed functions under Part 1. It is intended that where fees are charged, these will relate to the costs incurred by the Commission in exercising the functions to which they relate and there will not be cross subsidy of any of the Commission’s other functions.

280.The Commission will be able to decide how much the fees will be, how they will be calculated, and details such as when they should be paid. The Commission may charge different fees in different circumstances, or to different people. People liable to pay fees are required to give the Commission such information as it thinks is necessary in order to determine what fees should apply to them.

281.The Secretary of State can by regulations make alternative provision on fees (which will apply in place of provision made by the Commission) if he is of the view that it is necessary or desirable for him to do so.
