in Japan, China, South Korea or Taiwan by a person resident in Japan and acting for or on behalf of the Secretary of State, there shall be substituted, for any sum which would otherwise be payable by virtue of regulations 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 14, 17 or 18, a sum which shall be determined by the amount of work involved charged at an hourly rate of £157.50.

(2) In a case where paragraph (1) above applies, any fee payable in accordance with regulation 13 shall, subject to the following paragraphs, be calculated by reference to the Secretary of State’s estimate of the duration of the work likely to be required at the hourly rate specified in paragraph (1).

(3) If during the course of the work the Secretary of State estimates that the duration of the work likely to be required is greater than that estimated under paragraph (2) above, the fee shall be recalculated by reference to that greater estimate, and the excess, if any, over the fee originally payable shall be paid by the applicant.

(4) If the duration of the work actually required is greater or less than its estimated or re-estimated duration, the fee shall be recalculated by reference to the actual duration and the difference shall be paid by, or, as the case may be, refunded to, the applicant.
