EFIS 55, May 2018 : Legal Aid

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

The Legal Aid Agency has amended the forms listed which are used under the Advocates Graduated Fee Scheme (or AGFS for short) to reflect the introduction of the Criminal Legal Aid (Remuneration) (Amendment) Regulations on 1st April.

These 2018 Regulations follow a consultation exercise on reform of the AGFS which the government conducted last year.

Please follow the link to the website below at:

www.gov.uk/government/consultations/reforming-the-advocates-graduated-fee-scheme

AF1(A) and AF1(B) are new "contingency" forms for use where the Crown Court online billing system (CCD) is unavailable.

AF1(A) should only be used in these circumstances for representation orders dated on or after 1st April and AF1(B) for representation orders dated before 1st April 2018.

AF1 can only be used for representation orders dated before 1st April 2018 whilst AF2 should also only be used as a contingency form where the CCD is unavailable. AF1 has received a macro amendment.

Subscribers to this range should therefore use the latest versions of these new and amended forms for the situations described above.

For details of field amendments please go to: www.oyezforms.co.uk/fieldchanges
