Jurisdiction in which the firm at this address litigates, and hence that which normally governs costs rules for the firm
at this address (if litigating in other hurisdictions, your quantum of costs likely will be added to your agent's costs bills
as disbursements, and vice versa).
Some firms or fee earners may choose to record time in quarters of an hour (0.25, 0.75, etc). If so, choose 2, because
2 decimal places will be needed to display this correctly on vouchers and costs bills. Otherwise you may choose 1.
Note that because the CPD Precedents use TWO decimal places, when testing the PrecedentA and PrecedentH
datasets (try before you buy, etc) this value should always be set to 2.
Leave blank unless we have provided this to you to facilitate a special service
Leave blank unless we have provided you with a registration code to map your legacy accounting/time-recording
codes to our own CPD taxonomy to support CPD bills of costs. This provides you with backwards-compatibility. To
test, you can try Registration Code "TestLegacyToCPD". This loads a test file that includes mapping of activity code
"LegacyWod" to "WorkOnDocuments" (PRIOR to performance of material integrity checking) so you can test that this
process works.
Leave blank unless we have provided you with a registration code to map your legacy accounting/time-recording
codes to neo-UTBMS codes to support post-Jackson bills. "TestLegacyToUTBMS" includes mapping of activity code
"LegacyWod" to "U12345" (which until the new formats are designed will not activate so until that time will be
ignored)
Some firms allow certificates to be signed by the firm rather than individuals

If you are rapidly correcting errors and resubmitting, setting this to YES may help you avoid confusion in certain
reports. For fee vouchers, the drafting date will appear near the top and again in the footer (otherwise only the print
date will appear in the footer). For consolidated reconciliation reports, the drafting date will appear at the bottom.
Not implemented for Court bills as the keywords [TODAY], "[DATE_TITLE]" etc can be put in footers anyway.
If "yes", appends to vouchers a list of data sources used. This can be helpful to identify inappropriate but technically
valid data such as costs being allocated to the wrong case.
Errors are integrity problems arising from bad data that will invaliter reports. Costs reports will not be produced, nor
charges made, so long as errors persist. [now automatically enabled to dovetail with automatic suppression of
clearly erroneous bills of costs - cannot be switched off]

If you get currency symbols you do not recognise, then flip this setting, submit the spreadsheets again and the
problem should go away. Why? Because computers manufactured/bought/set up in, or for, different parts of the
world (including notebooks, and computers deliberately set up with a worldwide corporate configuration) encode
the same currency symbols differently and so may not display correctly in other locations. For example, though
USD($) uses a standard encoding, the encoding for other currencies varies, notably GBP. Therefore, to make sure we
encode the correct currency symbols for your location, we need to be told. We assume our major market is England
and so by default we use the encoding for GBP that is understood by most Western European computers and
printers. If it doesn't work, please flip the setting and re-submit. If after that the problem persists, please contact us.
