The unreported decision in Aircraft Completions Centre (Pty) Ltd v PJ Rossouw and Others (W) (case 23790/2001) endeavours to provide a summary of the law relating to attorney-and-client bills of costs. The principal question of law discussed by the court in this matter revolves around the basis of taxation to be applied when one party (the costs debtor) has been ordered or has agreed to pay the costs of the other (the costs creditor) as taxed on attorney-and-client scale.
