Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) has prepared tips to help lawyers meet their deadlines for billing. These tips will help lawyers receive payment on their accounts in a timely manner.

LAO has an 18-month billing rule. To comply with this rule, lawyers must submit an interim or final account for all fees and disbursements incurred within each previous 12-month period of a certificate within six months of the annual anniversary date of that certificate.
