The Code of Civil Procedure determines non-juridical days, which are days on which the courts cannot sit and bailiffs cannot make seizures. Non-juridical days are taken into account when calculating an appeal deadline or another time limit.
The following are non-juridical days:
- 1 and 2 January;
- Good Friday;
- Easter Monday;
- 24 June;
- the 1st of July or the 2nd of July when the 1st is a Sunday;
- 25 and 26 December;
- the day fixed by proclamation of the Governor-General for the celebration of the birthday of the Sovereign;
- any other day fixed by proclamation of the Government as a public holiday or as a day of thanksgiving (the first Monday of September, the second Monday of October).
Note that Saturday is considered to be a non-juridical day only when calculating a time limit.
