Background
The Department is in the process of reviewing the current tariffs charged by it to the public for services rendered by the courts and Masters' Offices. During the review process the Department identified the following services which are provided, for which revenue is collected: (a) Making photocopies of official documents at the courts and Masters' Offices. (b) Fees charged by the Masters' Offices for the administration of insolvent and deceased estates. (c) Fees charged by the Masters' Offices for the final liquidation of companies. During the review process the Department did benchmarking and took the following aspects into consideration when making its recommendations to amend the tariffs in order to ensure that these tariffs are market-related: (a) the actual cost of making photocopies by using the following variables: (i) taking into account the labour (the salary of an administration clerk on salary level 4, notice 6); and (ii) photocopier costs (cost per page on the current RT contract for a photocopier that produces 60,000 copies per month); and (b) the CPIX from the last day of review to July 2012. Proposed insertions are indicated by means of underlining and proposed deletions are indicated by means of square brackets in bold.
