In order to provide a fully transparent service for clients, all time spent working on your file by relevant staff is accurately logged in our proprietary workflow management system, HPlan. This enables us to transparently provide you with detailed reports showing you when and where time has been spent on your file. These reports are always available to you upon request.

At regular intervals during the advice process (usually at the end of each stage of the advice process), we may provide you with a ‘CEA Update’ which provides you with updated fee estimates. It also reconciles our original fee estimate for the relevant stage of the advice process against the time actually spent to date on your file, along with a reconciliation of amounts paid or written off by HFS to date and the residual amount to be paid. This provides a transparent and fair basis for any fee discussions that may arise.
