The Comsure fees shown are an hourly rate and which will vary due to the nature of the engagement, and any instruction will incur a minimum fee of £130.00 (equivalent to 30 mins).
Any time after 30 mins, will be made up of each 15 minutes after that (15 mins = 1 unit of time)
• The Comsure regulatory consultants' net hourly rates range between £260 – £300 (support fees for Comsure unqualified support staff are less). Comsure will only exceed these rates when Comsure uses specialist support. For example, a Comsure legal consultant's [knowledge level - Jersey legal advocate ] hourly rate is £300.00. And Comsure will always advise what hourly fees are before any work starts.
In general terms Comsure's rates (outside any pre-agreed project or retainer cost) are as follows:
- £285.00 an hour = Principal / Senior Consultant
- £130 an hour = Support staff, e.g. Karolina Suchecka, Martyna Czerny
(Please note if you choose the retainer option (see below), the charges calculated on a 2:1 ratio (1 retainer hour [£260.00] = two chargeable hours (£130x2=£260.00)
Further to the above, a Comsure client can either:
- “Pay as you go" based on Comsure's regular charge-out rate (above); or
- "Pay through a Retainer Arrangement" (that offers a discount to the costs above) – contact Comsure for more details
If Comsure use specialist support (e.g., legal expert), at the outset of any engagement, Comsure will tell you what their fees will be
Following any instruction, and outside of any formal arrangement, the Comsure standard terms of business apply at all times.
