Graduated Fee Calculators
Recently I have added the Graduated Fee Calculators found on Justice.gov.uk to assist you in fee calculation should your software fail you.
Except where stated the documents and resources provided are all pooled from the various LAA/HMCTS/CPS sites dotted around and are not subject to changes, all documents are in their original formats.
The Graduated Fee Scheme for each area have varied greatly over the years. I have attempted to put all relevant regulations and forms onto this site. Each area of law has its own designated page with all relevant regulations, guidance and documents where possible, if you spot one that is missing please let me know.
The Graduated Fees Schemes can often be confusing and knowing which documents to use and what rules to apply can be a minefield of regulations. and with no formal training currently offered you can often be shooting blind. This site aims to assist you in your quest for accurate billing.
Graduated Fees is produced by Richard Wright, Chambers Administrator at St Pauls Chambers.
The site is produced as an aid to clerks and counsel who are undertaking billing. Unless stated all relevant documentation is obtained or links to all available published guidelines.
