All operational staff and insolvency administration staff, together with the time spent by the insolvency cashier, is charged in fractions of one hour, the smallest being 6 minutes, or one tenth of an hour.
The current charge rates are included below:
|Grade of Staff||Hourly Charge out|

These costs are directly recharged to the assignment, and recovered as soon as funds allow. No general overhead recovery is charged to the individual assignments until the final scheme of division as a provision for final costs.

where large numbers of creditors exist)
