Style of Remit


The Auditor of the Court of Session requires a remit to allow him to tax fees.  This can be in the form of an interlocutor from the Court remitting an Account of Expenses to him to tax or by way of a joint remit signed by all parties requesting that he carry out the taxation.  

A formal remit may be in the following form:
“(place) (date). I, AB as Executor of the late CD and we, Messrs E & F Solicitors to the Executor, hereby request the Auditor of the Court of Session to tax the remuneration due and payable to the Solicitors for their whole work and responsibility in connection with (matter)

Signed : AB E&F

This is not essential where it is demonstrated to the Auditor that the client concurs in the request for taxation and accepts that it will be binding.
