Mediation and conciliation

At the start of a mediation or conciliation procedure at the Arbitration Board, the parties are charged a fee of DKK 5,000 including service charge.

The parties are charged an amount of DKK 30,000 for mediation and conciliation including a front-end fee and a service charge of DKK 5,000. The fee payable to the mediator or conciliator will be calculated provisionally on the basis of time spent, the assumption being that as little time as possible will be spent up to the mediation or conciliation meeting, for which one working day is typically set aside. The fee covers preparation, participation in a telephone conference, if any, and participation in the actual meeting. No fee will be payable to the mediator or conciliator for meeting hours if the meeting finishes before the anticipated time.

The Arbitration Board takes care of practical matters, including the convening of meetings, so that the mediator or conciliator will not have to spend time on them. The amounts charged will be distributed equally among the parties unless otherwise agreed. Each party defrays its own costs for legal assistance or other assistance. Transport costs, etc paid in connection with inspections and meetings will be reimbursed.

If the parties want an additional mediator or conciliator, a supplementary fee of DKK 1,000 will be charged.

The Arbitration Board is not registered for VAT, so all fees and charges are exempt from VAT. If and when the Arbitration Board invoices services on which VAT must be paid ­– typically expenses related to expert appraisal ­– the VAT amount will be specified in the settlement letter.

Mediation cases are filed as P-cases.

Conciliation cases are filed as Q-cases.

Prices

The Arbitration Board charges a front-end fee of DKK 5,000 including a service charge.

If the parties withdraw the case within thirty days after it was filed with the Arbitration Board and the Board has been notified accordingly, the service charge will be waived.

If mediation or conciliation is unsuccessful, the fees and the service charge will be offset in amounts payable if the dispute is referred to arbitration. In such a scenario fees and a service charge will be payable for the arbitral case instead.

Payment information

To ensure fast and correct registration of payments and deposits at the Arbitration Board, the FIK code sent to the parties to the case when the complaint was filed should be used. Some Board letters contain codes for both parties, with the names of the parties clearly stated next to the relevant codes. The correct FIK code must be used. Some IT systems do not support the use of FIK codes, in which case payments can be made to the following account:

Danske Bank, registration number 4180, account number 4180211519
SWIFT: DABADKKK – DKK IBAN: DK5830004180211519

If manual transfers are used, please state the Arbitration Board file number, the names of the parties and the name of the payer.

Unfortunately it is not currently possible to use the EAN system for electronic invoicing, and electronic invoices will therefore be issued only in response to a special request sent to bogh@voldgift.dk.
