As above, I've been asked by a solicitors for a copy of a MEIWC I did back in 2016. As some may know, I closed my business down a year ago, but I don't see why I should provide this for free, especially having paid out in solicitors fees for a recent house move. Their fees aint cheap. If it had been a customer, I'd given it for free, as I have done.

I was thinking my then hourly rate, so £30ish. Or is that being greedy! What do guys normally charge?

Definitely charge, £100.
In a similar vein we used to do periodics for a high street chain, now gone bust and when they took the contract from us due to price they kept asking for old reports because they had lost them. We quoted a £400 admin charge per report to supply a new one, they happily paid!

I recently paid £175. That was an intern not the full price for the actual solicitor too! That would have been £275. But apparently she read it first, hence the £175 I guess lol

I would be inclined to charge over £100
if you have stopped trading, then surely all that information is archived away and will take a considerable time to find and copy!?

Could they just get around it using GDPR portability & SAR clauses? :p
I’ve yet to ask exactly why it’s needed, but they did say they contacted the NIC to obtain a copy, but were declined. So it can’t be for my old customer.
