Sources of payment for A&A accounts: the hierarchy of payments and Fund as last port of call

When you send us your account, any contribution payable by the client, whether collected or not, will be automatically deducted from the claim.

The hierarchy of payment must be observed.  The Fund is the last port of call for payment and you should only send us an account if there is a shortfall.  If, for example, in an employment case the client recovers money, this is exempt from being taken into consideration. However, if expenses are awarded, you should deduct these from any claim whether the expenses are recovered or not, and you can claim only the shortfall from the Fund.
