How much do you charge?

Our standard fee is 75.00 + VAT for attempting service of your documents. We charge 12.50 + VAT for preparing and swearing an affidavit of service or for completing a Certificate or Statement of Service. If you have a lot of exhibits then we would charge these at cost. Back to top ^^
