Interaction between costs budgets and indemnity costs

Re: Interaction between costs budgets and indemnity costs

The Civil Procedure Rules say
Factors to be taken into account in deciding the amount of costs
44.4 ... (3) The court will ... have regard to ... (h) the receiving party's last approved or agreed budget.

Nothing in CPR 44.4 indicates that this applies only if the court is assessing costs on the standard basis. On the contrary, CPR 44.4(1) refers to both the standard basis and the indemnity basis.

Mea culpa. Until now I overlooked this rule. So, it seems to me, did judgements mentioned in this thread.

But there are differences between the two bases in 44.1(a) and (b), and surely those differences are significant.
