Value Added Tax VAT
Value added tax (VAT) has to be added to our fees and all disbursements. This applies if your usual place of residence is the UK, including if you had leave to remain in the UK but overstayed. If you are not resident in the UK, or you entered the country without permission or as an asylum seeker and do not yet have leave to remain, you are not normally liable to pay VAT.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as visa fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Depending on the nature and type of your application, there may be additional expenses that you will be required to pay. This may include Home Office application fees, Immigration Health Surcharge, if applicable, fees for translating any document written in foreign language, interpreter fees if you need one to communicate with us or for interview, independent expert reports, e.g. medical reports. If an interview is arranged as part of the application process and we do attend with you, there will be additional disbursements in respect of our mileage/travel expenses.
