1.4.2 Claims fees

If, at the time of filing the first set of claims, the divisional application comprises more than fifteen claims, a claims fee is payable in respect of each claim over and above that number (see A‑III, 9). Claims fees are payable even if in the parent application they were paid in respect of claims relating to the subject-matter now the subject of the divisional application (see A‑III, 9).
