Scotland’s Redress Scheme: reclaiming expenses for solicitors form

Guidance and the reclaiming expense form for solicitors.

This document is part of a collection


This form is for solicitors to reclaim any applicable costs you have incurred on behalf of a client in connection with an application to Scotland’s Redress Scheme.

You should use one form for each client’s expenses.

You can claim expenses for money you have spent on:

  • getting or certifying records and documents for your client
  • other expenses

You are strongly encouraged to contact a case worker before you incur an expense above £50. A case worker will advise you if you are likely to be reimbursed for this cost.

This form is available both as an interactive PDF document and a print copy. If you’re using the interactive PDF, you can type directly in to the document and save it on your device.
