Entitlements and conditions
The fees in Table CC may be increased in matters where:
- additional daily appearance fees are required
- in exceptional circumstances additional preparation fees are required and calculated at an hourly rate of $252. This would ordinarily only arise where extensive preparation is required due to the complexity of the matter. When assessing an application for further preparation fees, we will take into account the total preparation allowed under Table CC.
- a further conciliation conference is listed and the two conciliation conferences fees available under Table CC have been utilised.
- additional expert reports are required that exceed the above maximum fee provided.
