The Cap On Recoverable Costs Of Costs Budgeting And Other Interesting Points

Master Gordon-Saker determined three issues which arose in the course of a detailed assessment, namely:

i) whether the caps on recoverable costs of budgeting provided by sub-paragraphs 7.2(a) and (b) of Practice Direction 3E of the Civil Procedure Rules 1998 include or exclude value added tax;

ii) whether the Claimant was entitled to recover the sum of £2484.48 in respect of interest paid under a disbursement funding loan; and

iii) whether the Claimant’s entitlement to interest should run from 3 months after the date of the order for costs.
