For Accountants.

The remuneration of tax specialists, accountants and office-holders is coming under increasing scrutiny as stakeholders seek increasing value for money and the regulatory environment tightens. 


Scrutiny may come from HM Revenue and Customs in relation to remuneration and expenses claimed in insolvency or proceeds of crime act proceedings; from a bankrupt seeking to challenge his trustee in bankruptcy’s fees; or from a party subject to sequestration proceedings seeking to challenge the sequestrators’ remuneration and account.  The issues in dispute can be wide-ranging and complicated, and demand detailed knowledge of insolvency and accounting practice, together with the law in relation to the assessment of costs.


We understand the work undertaken by accountants and office-holders, their time recording systems, their professional obligations, and the particular challenges they face in seeking to balance the conflicting demands of stakeholders in sometimes hostile proceedings.

We are entrusted to advise on the full range of costs matters.  Our clients know that they will receive the same expert advice and hard work no matter what type of instruction we receive.


Our job is to maximise to the fullest extent the recovery of costs when we act for the Receiving Party, and minimise the loss to the fullest extent when we don't.


In doing so, you will be fully advised on risk factors and cost, and we will not put you at risk.


 Whether that be a simple bill of costs or a detailed and complex multi-party costs budget you will receive the same standard of advice.


Our client retention rate is extremely high and that is testament to the hard work of the team.
