As I have already written, the fee schedule as from 1 July 2014 is increasingly irrelevent as JMEs have continued to charge their usual fee. We were told, in no uncertain manner that as from 1 January 2015 the fee schedule would definitely apply. Now the TAC has extended the transition period to 31 March 2015! The fee schedule will ( some scepticism here) be from $1231 – $1800 + GST), with complexity criteria to guide examiners billing within this range. There will be exceptions, examiners can contact the TAC to discuss circumstances where the reasonable cost for the service may be above the fee range when the transition period ends.
