(e-filing) Imposition of charges for use of the Service Bureau w.e.f. 01.01.2012

Dear Members of the KL Bar,

As Members may be aware, the e-filing system was first implemented on 01.03.2011 in Kuala Lumpur and was thereafter extended to several other States. The Service Bureau was set up and was to provide free services at no charge for the first three (3) months. However, this period was later extended and no charges have been imposed thus far for use of the services provided at the Service Bureau.

The Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee has received a notification from the Chief Registrar that charges for use of the Service Bureau will be implemented beginning from 01.01.2012.

No such charges will be imposed for electronic filing conducted online from law firm offices.

Kindly take note.
