The fee on a successful case will be 22.5% plus VAT of any compensation awarded to you.
For example: if you receive compensation of the following amounts you will be invoiced as follows:
Compensation of £1,000: Fee= £225 + VAT on fee of £45. Total fee including VAT= £270
Compensation of £3,000: Fee= £675 + VAT on fee of £135. Total fee including VAT=£810.
Compensation of £10,000:Fee= £2,250 + VAT on fee of £450. Total fee including VAT=£2,700.
These examples are not estimates of the amount of compensation that may be awarded. They are illustrative only. Your compensation may be more or less than these illustrations.
If you would like me to look at anything else (I’ve dealt with everything from offshore pension plans to Inheritance Tax planning bonds) then I will let you know what the fee would be after carrying out an initial analysis of the advice and the chances of making a successful claim. You will be under no obligation to proceed if you don’t want to after receiving my report.
Competitor fees and my price match promise
I like to think my fee is very competitive. However, periodically, new competitors enter the market and offer lower fees to attract business. I do not believe they can be representing clients properly if the fees are so low as to be uneconomic – corners must be cut somewhere otherwise costs will quickly outstrip income.
If you choose a claims management firm or solicitor based on the lowest fee and your case is lost because they cannot afford to put the time and effort into it then you have gained nothing. However, I appreciate in these difficult times everyone needs to budget carefully so if you find the same service I offer elsewhere at a cheaper rate then do please let me know. If possible, I will match the fee for you as best I can.
Changing your mind
You will be able to change your mind about proceeding with your case at any time. If you do so within 14 days of signing the contract, you will not incur any charges.
Should you wish to cancel our agreement after 14 days, in order to cover costs incurred you may be charged a reasonable fee proportionate to the work carried out on your behalf up to the date of termination. This will be set out in writing and the fees are: (a) for the initial analysis of your case and presentation of reasons for complaint the charge is £50 plus VAT; (b) for each communication with you, whether by telephone, letter, email or SMS, sent by you or by G. Vaughan Financial Services Ltd to you, a charge of £20 plus VAT. If you terminate the contract after a reasonable offer of compensation has been made, then a charge equivalent to the fee that would be payable as outlined above will be payable.
Any cancellation fee will be set out in writing for you at the time you request to cancel. To cancel your contract, simply contact me or click here to download the cancellation form.
