The Senior Courts Costs Office Guide 2018 has been published, replacing the 2013 version.

The new guide reflects changes which have occurred as 2013 reforms to Parts 43-48 of the Civil Procedure Rules have bedded in.

It is also designed to assist practitioners and parties with the use of electronic bills of costs, which are mandatory for costs incurred after 6 April 2018.

The guide will now exist only electronically, to make it easier to revise more regularly in future.
