Assessment or Taxation Fees
At the end of an arbitration, or after an issue has been decided in the course of the arbitration, the Tribunal usually makes an order for the legal costs incurred by a party (or a part of the legal costs) to be paid by the other party. The Tribunal usually determines the amount of such cost to be paid.
SIAC prefers that the Tribunal does so. But if the Tribunal does not do so and the parties cannot agree on the amount, the Registrar of SIAC may be asked to assess the amount for the parties. This process is sometimes called “taxation” of costs. The party that requires the Registrar’s services pays a fee according to the amount of costs claimed.
|Amount of Costs Claimed||Assessment or Taxation Fee|
|Up to 50,000||5,000|
|50,001 – 100,000||5,000 + 2% of excess over 50,000|
|100,001 – 250,000||6,000 + 1.5% of excess over 100,000|
