Report Summary

Objects of the Bill

The object of the Bill is to amend the Fees and Fines Act, Chapter 45 of the Laws of Zambia so as to empower the Minister to prescribe the value of a fee and penalty unit by statutory instrument.  In addition, the Bill will allow the Minister to prescribe the criteria for conversion of fees and penalty units.  This is in order to enable periodic review of the value of a fee or penalty unit, taking into account inflation and streamline the administration of fees and fines.
