The arbitration fee for a milestone dispute is $5.00 SGD or 5%, whichever is greater.
Our dispute resolution system is designed to allow both parties to resolve issues regarding milestone payments amongst themselves without arbitration.After 5 days of a dispute being filed either party may elect to move the dispute to paid arbitration. The other party will then have a further 5 days to agree to pay this fee and for both parties to submit any final evidence.
If the other party fails to pay within time, they will lose the dispute.The arbitration fee will then be refunded to the winner of the dispute.
For our subscriptions, Singapore residents are subject to GST of 7%.
