Author: Mr. Dieter Yih

In a recent appeal case, re David John Kennedy v Kelly Cheng and Robert Yip (FACV No 30 of 2008, 12 October 2012), on the subject of indemnity costs, the Court of Final Appeal in referring to party and party taxation commented that “anything over and above the normal average fees would not be regarded by the court as reasonable and will be taxed off and the Receiving Party will have to suffer the shortfall”. It follows, therefore, that costs that are calculated based on normal average fees, based on normal average hourly rates, should be allowable on taxation.
