9. Do I have to pay costs?

You must pay the full amount shown on the summons, including the costs, to stop further recovery action.

We incur costs in preparing the summons and we recover those costs from you.

From 1 April 2017 costs have increased to £42 for the issue of the summons and to £10 for the granting of the liability order.
