The cost of taking a claim to the Disputes Tribunal has gone up.

The minimum fee is now $45 (up from $36.30). But there's also some good news: this fee now applies to claims up to $2000 instead of $1000.

For the next group - claims up to $5000 - the fee's risen from $60.40 to $90. And if your claim involves $5000 or more, the cost is $180 (up from $120.80).
