Supreme Court of Tasmania


Supreme Court of Tasmania - Circulars

Circular No. 15 of 2005
4 October 2005

SCHEDULE 1, SUPREME COURT RULES
STATUTORY RULE 109/2005

Following a submission of the Law Society of the 5 July 2005 the Standing Committee on Costs and Fees recommended an increase of 15% (except in respect of photocopy charges).

Some alterations have been made to Part 1 in an effort to update it. One of those alterations is the substitution of 100 words for folio (and a respective increase in fees).

Part 2 is amended to bring counsel's fees in line with those payable in complex actions in the Civil Division of the Magistrates Court.

Parts 3 and 5 have been amended to distinguish between costs and filing fees in order to avoid the need to amend those parts when filing fees are increased.

I attach an amended scale - Schedule 1. (See also Circular 14/2005)
