EFIS 33, July 2008 : Legal Aid

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

From 1st August, the Legal Services Commission’s computer systems will only pay VAT where legal aid firms have requested such payment when submitting a claim on CDS6 because the Legal Services Commission aims to bring crime reporting into line with civil reporting.

CDS6 has been revised to reflect these new VAT arrangements.

In particular, CDS6 incorporates two new fields for VAT, one for Profit Costs and the other for Disbursements. From 1st August, practitioners should report all costs exclusive of VAT and should indicate for each reported case whether VAT should be added to Profit Costs and to any Disbursements which are claimed.

Although this amended version of CDS6 can be completed for cases completed after 1st July, practitioners should not submit CDS6 to the Legal Services Commission before 1st August.

Please also find enclosed CLSCLAIM4A which has received minor macro and field amendments. This form can be used immediately.
