The cost of Employment Tribunals can be found within the HMCTS annual accounts published at:

We have provided the link to the previous full financial year rather than the last 12 months of operation as the most recent 12 months of data has not been audited and does not contain the full overhead costs which are only applied at the end of the financial year and, as such, will not provide a like-for-like comparison with published data in prior years.
