Our firm adopts a transparent and fair charging fee structure. We also endeavour to be competitive with market rates. There are two ways in which we charge for our services, either an hourly rate or on a fixed fee basis.
For certain types of applications (as listed below), we will agree a fixed fee. For all other types of applications we will be happy to discuss your requirements and advise upon fees payable.
Fixed fees are charged irrespective of the time that we take to complete your work. This is subject to any changes in instructions or additional information that we were not made aware of at the start of our retainer and in such circumstances we reserve the right to revise our fee. We will never conduct any additional work or vary the fees without your agreement.
For the following Applications our fees (excluding VAT) will be as follows
|Application Type||Fee Range|
|Naturalisation or Registration||£1500 to £2000|
|EEA Registration||£1000 to £1250|
|EEA Permanent Residence||£1500 to £2000|
|Student Visa/extension||£800 to £1250|
|Spouse Visa/extension||£1500 to £2500|
|Visit Visa||£1000 to £1500|
|Tier 2 Visa/extension||£1000 to £1500|
|Tier 5 Visa/extension||£1000 to £1500|
|Indefinite Leave To Remain||£1500 to £2500|
|Long Residency||£2500 to £3500|
Whether the fixed fee we agree with you is at the lower or higher end of the range will depend on the following factors:
If you are able to provide sufficient evidence at our first meeting and clearly meet the applicable Immigration Rules, the cost is likely to be at the lower end of the relevant range.
Our fees do not include our attendance at Home Office interviews or, in the event that your application is refused by the Home Office, advice and assistance in relation to any appeal.
In addition to our fees, disbursements (payments made to third parties) will also be incurred. The anticipated disbursements in an immigration matter are as follows:
