The GBA recently took a taxation point on the interpretation of the regulations
for the payment of half fees where an accused person tenders a plea of not guilty
when represented by the duty agent and subsequently adjusts a plea to reduced charges.
The auditor found in our favour and ruled that a full fee should be paid.
SLAB have until the 28th November to lodge objections to this decision.
We will keep the membership fully advised of any
Please note that until that date the full fee cannot be claimed in such cases
