This is your opportunity to provide feedback on the new Bill of Costs format. The Committee appointed to make recommendations on a new bill of costs pursuant to the Jackson Report, have provided me with the draft new bill of costs and guidance documents for consultation. They are looking for people and organisations with a specialist expertise in this area, and/or who have a particular interest in the J-Codes and the new bill of costs project to take part in a consultation process.
The Committee are inviting comments/suggestions on the draft new bill of costs by 18 September 2015. It is planned that there will be a Practice Direction in force from the start of October 2015 which will enable parties to use the new bill of costs in cases in the SCCO instead of the existing model (although at this stage there is no requirement to use the new bill, only that it is voluntary and you would not be in breach of the rules if you adopted it). The longer term plan at present is that there will be a pilot in all SSCO cases where there costs order giving rise to the right to costs has been made on or after 1st April 2016 where the new bill of costs will be the recommended form of bill in place of the existing model.
It is requested that any such comments or suggestions be emailed to both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by 4pm on 18 September 2015. The Committee note ‘Please do not expect an instant response from us as we will be collating comments together and considering them as a whole. But we value your help in hopefully improving the current draft of the new bill. Please also read the guidance documents carefully before you email as some of the answers to queries may well be in them.’
The relevant documents for the consultation are available here (once these open please click on the download icon at the top of your screen). If you have any difficulty accessing the spreadsheets, please email Janna.firstname.lastname@example.org and copies can be emailed to you.
