Could you please share how do you price your Court Reports. I found they are very tedious and detailed and it takes me a long time to prepare one and I don’t think we have priced it accordingly. What is industry standard or approximate price?
I don’t think court reports can ever be priced correctly. I charge $300.00 for mine and I know that is to cheep considering the time they take to write. I decided the amount of time I spend writing a report is worth it for the children.
We also charge $300 plus $30gst. In the past we charged $110 per page but this caused a lot of problems when we felt that we needed to provide a lengthy report to highlight the facts but legal practitioners, ICLs and parents would then complain wanting a more abridged version.
We have found that having a set fee means that parents can prepare for the cost and ICLs can apply for approval to pay the report fee prior to us completing it.
The set fee has enabled us to obtain the fees far more easily.
