ACL Bill

The Association of Costs Lawyers has been working for some time now to provide its members with a real solution to the requirements of the electronic Bill of Costs pilot set out in PD51L.  This template has been produced in consultation with members, the Law Society and the Senior Courts Costs Office. You will find the template document in excel format and guidance here.

The ACL Bill has been produced to comply with the new PD51L as of 3 October 2016. In particular, we have had regard to PD51L 1.4.

The ACL Bill is free for all ACL members.  Please note that whilst this may be used by members for preparation of Bills of Costs for their clients, resale of the template itself as a template is not permitted.

The ACL has made every effort to ensure this template is compliant and calculates correctly, however it accepts no responsibility or liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of this template or guidance. The user is fully responsible for ensuring that the Bill of Costs submitted for assessment is compliant in all respects.
