Costs are dealt with on a “no recovery no fee” basis.
Otherwise known as a “conditional fee agreement”, we charge an hourly rate for work carried out. If we “succeed” on a particular matter, in that a recovery is made, the costs are normally added to the debt and recovered from the debtor. If we are “unsuccessful” in that no recovery is made from the debtor, the costs are written off.
Any disbursements incurred are payable no matter what the outcome of the case. Typical disbursements might include court fees, official receivers deposit, process server fees, and advertisement of winding up petitions.
All disbursements are recoverable from the debtor and in all cases we will seek to recover disbursements (in addition to costs) from the debtor so that the net result to the authority is that there have been no costs to pay.
