Total operating costs for the case resolution directorate in 2007-08 were £31.3 million. The indicative budget for 2008-09 is about £30 million. Budgets for the remaining period up to July 2011 have yet to be finalised.

Work on supported legacy cases in 2007-08 yielded savings to the asylum support budget of £22 million in 2007-08 and expected savings of £120 million in 2008-09
