Before the 1st October 2012, there was a £15 Victim Surcharge on a conviction (for most railway offences).


When The Criminal Justice Act 2003 (Surcharge) Order 2012 came into force, this changed the £15 amount. As most railway offences are punished by way of fine(s), the following new charges apply:


Under 18:

Stays at £15 for a fine,

Other sentences between £10 and £20.


Over 18:

If fined, minimum amount of 10% of the fine. E.g. £500 fine = £50 Victim Surcharge costs. Cannot exceed £120. Must be more than £20.

Conditional Discharge = £15

Community Sentence = £60

Other sentences = £80-£120




So, Mr. F. Evader, an employed person is convicted for breaching Byelaw 18(1). He had plead not guilty and is sentenced accordingly.


He is fined £300.

Ordered to pay costs of £120 to the Prosecutor, £5 compensation to the Railway for the unpaid fare and has the new Victim Surcharge of £30 added.


Total cost: £455
