Create a subsequent filing

If you are submitting a filing that already has a Supreme Court proceeding number, this is called a subsequent filing. Watch this video to learn more about how to create a subsequent filing and the steps you need to follow. 

This video will show you how to create a subsequent filing in the Supreme Court’s electronic filing system, RedCrest. Please note that the selections made are examples only. If you require any assistance on procedural matters, please contact the relevant registry.

A subsequent filing applies wherever you have a filing where there is an existing Supreme Court proceeding number.

From the eFile screen, enter the proceeding number in the format as shown, and then click create subsequent filing.

Please note that you do need to use capitals and insert spaces between the letters and numbers as shown.

Select create subsequent filing.

Select the party you're filing on behalf of.

If you're filing on behalf of multiple parties, select the party with the highest fee category.

If required, you can change your fee category by selecting the drop-down menu.

Alternatively, if you are a new party on the proceeding, select add party and complete the party details.

Select the document type you are filing.

Attach a document by clicking the browse button and enter the document title in the document notes section using the document naming conventions. The document naming conventions can be found under the resource section by clicking on the sidebar of your screen.

If your filing has a fee and you've made a change to a party’s fee category or a new party, you can also find the fee category application form by clicking on the sidebar of your screen, under fees and application forms.

Select add document to add any additional documents you need to file.

Click the browse button again to upload the document.

Once you have attached all the documents you need to file select continue with filing.

This will take you to a review screen.

Note the subsequent filing number at the top of the screen.

This is also referred to as your eFile ID. You can contact the registry with any queries about your filing quoting this number.

After reviewing your filing, if you need to make any changes, you can click the modify button and it will take you back to the previous screen to make edits. Otherwise, select submit filing.

If your filing has a fee attached to it, you'll be directed to PayPal to make payment using either a PayPal account or a credit or debit card.
