Does my award have to be for a minimal value?
No, all employment tribunal awards and ACAS settlements can be enforced by The Sheriffs Office regardless of their value.
How much does it cost to get an employment tribunal award?

How much does it cost to enforce my award?
There is a £71 court fee, payable to HMCTS. If enforcement is successful, this is recovered from the defendant, along with the original award, interest and enforcement costs.
If enforcement is not successful, there is normally nothing further to pay. Note: this only applies to the enforcement of employment tribunal awards and ACAS settlements. There is a compliance fee of £75 plus VAT for all other types of judgment enforcement.
