This Schedule of charges sets out the basis of calculating the amount of charges payable under regulations 5 and 6.
The SRA will record the amount of time spent investigating and considering each case and the amount payable under the regulations will vary depending on the amount of time spent on that matter.
The standard levels of charges are as follows:
Number of hours spent on matter
Under 2 hours
2 hours or more but under 8 hours
In addition to the fixed charge of £1350, where investigations take more than 16 hours, an extra charge of £75 for every hour (£37.50 for every half hour) will be applied (rounded up or down to the nearest half hour).
For the purposes of regulations 6.3 and 6.4, the additional fixed charge for an appeal shall be £250.
