Queensland scales of costs adjusted by CPI

29 August 2012 Topics: Litigation and dispute resolution

The scales of costs in the Magistrates, District and Supreme Courts of Queensland have been increased by 4.9% to account for changes in the consumer price index since the last adjustment in 2010.

The scales of costs are used to determine the amount payable where one party must pay the ‘standard’ legal costs (not the actual legal costs) of another party to litigation.

The increases came into effect from 24 August 2012.
