Schedule of Fees & Charges

Life Fees
You may elect to deal with us on a fee basis. (It is common to distinguish on the basis of the seniority of the person and between advisers and support staff.)
Sample fee structure:*

Principles / Directors €100 – €200 per hour
Senior Advisers €100 – €200 per hour
Associates €75 – €100 per hour
Support staff €40 – €75 per hour.

Additional fees may be payable for complex cases or to reflect value, specialist skills or urgency.

Personal Retirement Savings Accounts (PRSAs) – Fees
Where advice is requested for PRSAs, the following hourly fees will apply:
Advisor fees: €50 – €100 per hour.
Support staff: €40 – €50 per hour.

Additional fees may be payable for complex cases or to reflect value, specialist skills or urgency. We will give an estimate of this rate in advance of providing you with services. If we receive commission from a product provider, this will be offset against the fee which we will charge you. Where the commission is greater than the fee due, the commission will become the amount payable to the intermediary unless an arrangement to the contrary is made.

When arranging finance we may charge an additional percentage of interest on instalments up to a maximum of 2%

Mortgages
We may receive up to 1% (or whatever maximum is applicable) of the loan for arranging mortgage finance. This commission is paid by the mortgage lender.

Please note that lenders may charge specific fees in certain circumstances and if this applies, these fees will be specified in your Loan Offer. You have the right to pay a fee separately and not include it in the loan. Typically, this situation arises in relation to specialist lending.

If we provide mortgage advice and obtain a Loan Offer for you and you subsequently do not proceed with your mortgage application through our firm, we will charge you an arrangement fee of €500 for our services.
