1 Supreme Court of South Australia Filing Fee

The Supreme Court of South Australia will require an application filing fee in order to provide a grant. The amount of the filing-fee corresponds to the gross value of the South Australian estate.

The following are the current filing fees for the respective estates, for the 2024/2025 financial year:
