    A lot of practices increase for inflation every year. I've never been brave enough to do it, but I will this year.

    I don't put fees in my LoE; I've structured my LoE so I don't have to keep renewing it unless the scope of the engagement changes dramatically. If yours specifies fees and doesn't specify £x plus and inflationary increase each year, then yes, you would need a new LoE.

    We used to increase fees by 2-5% every 2-3 years depending on client. However, we haven't done that for last year or two due to recession.

    Also agree with Monsoon we don't mention the fee amount in LOE just when we invoice.
