All small claims will now have to be filed online: State Courts

Thursday, 14th July 2017

"SINGAPORE — Those who want to resolve transaction disputes by filing a small claim will now have to do so online, as the old way of filing a case by heading down to the Small Claims Tribunals is no longer available. 
This comes under the first phase of the State Courts’ Community Justice and Tribunals System (CJTS), which was launched on Monday (July 10).
With this e-filing system, those who submit a claim can also do the following online: Negotiate for a settlement, select their court date, obtain a court order and make payments. 
The parties involved will be able to view documents submitted by each other and monitor their case developments through the portal.
In a press statement on Monday, the State Courts said that these functions would “reduce errors in filing, increase the likelihood of settling a dispute on (the claimants’) own terms, and save some time to attend court in order to resolve a small claims dispute”.
Filing a claim, for instance, may now be reduced to as little as 15 minutes.
Individuals can access the CJTS with their SingPass (the password-enabled portal to government e-services), while corporate entities can do so with their CorpPass."
