Act of Sederunt (Fees of Solicitors in the Court of Session, Sheriff Appeal Court and Sheriff Court) (Taxation of Judicial Expenses Rules) (Amendment) 2023

Jun 01, 2023

The Act of Sederunt amends the Taxation of Judicial Expenses Rules (2019) and provides for a 9.75% increase in the unit rate provided for in rule 3.2.

The uplift applies to all items contained in the tables of fees set out in Schedules 1 to 5 of the 2019 rules. These tables regulate the charges that an entitled party can recover in respect of the work carried out by their solicitor in the conduct of civil proceedings in the Court of Session, Sheriff Appeal Court and sheriff court (where the proceedings are commenced on or after 29th April 2019).

The tables of fees, for proceedings raised before 29 April 2019 (i.e. non-unitised), will also increase by 9.75% and will come into force on the same date as the change in the unitised rate

The new fees will apply from 30 June 2023.
