The Small Claims track  is a part of the County Court system which is set up to handle defended cases that are normally below £10,000 in value.

Judgments awarded in the Small Claims Court are County Court Judgments (CCJs), which can still be transferred to the High Court for enforcement, provided they are over £600.

Costs are not normally awarded in the Small Claims Court. A judge may decide to move a case out of this track and into another if it is complex.
