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.
