New electronic bill of costs
The new electronic bill of costs is set to be implemented from 1 October, after it went before the Civil Procedure Rule Committee earlier this year. The new format is due to apply to costs incurred after the start date, and will be a transition away from paper bills.
Members, and in particular civil litigators, should be aware of this upcoming change, as it will present a significant change of practice in terms of recording time. We will keep you updated on this matter once it has been confirmed in the latest Civil Procedure Rule Committee minutes.
