Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Act of Sederunt)

This Act of Sederunt amends Chapter 42 (taxation of accounts and fees of solicitors) of the Rules of the Court of Session 1994.

Paragraph 2 amends rule 42.9 (form of account of expenses) to remove the requirement for an account of expenses to be taxed as if the whole work had been carried out by one solicitor.

Paragraph 3 amends the Table of Fees recoverable in respect of work carried out by solicitors in the Court of Session by increasing the fees which are recoverable by about 6.5%. The last increase in fees was made by Act of Sederunt (Rules of the Court of Session Amendment No. 2) (Fees of Solicitors) 2007.

This Act of Sederunt does not apply to fees chargeable for work done, or outlays incurred, before it comes into force.
