When does travel become chargeable under A&A? Information you must be satisfied on
Travel to your client is only chargeable if you are satisfied from your contact so far that:
- Your client is financially eligible.
- The advice is to be given on a matter of Scots law.
- The nature of the advice is such that the likely cost of giving it is reasonable.
You cannot charge for travel until you have taken enough information from them to satisfy yourself of their basic eligibility for advice and assistance.
