Outlays vary from matter to matter and are additional to costs. Outlays include such fees as barrister’s costs and search fees. In most cases we prefer payment of such fees into our trust account.
We issue tax invoices at regular intervals during the course of a matter. This ensures our clients are well informed as to costs. We seek payment of our invoices within 7 days.
You will need to add GST to all quotes for costs and disbursements.
