(b) a cost recovery fee.


(2) Following the acceptance of an "application" SARS must, if requested, provide the "applicant" with an estimate of the cost recovery fee anticipated in connection with the "application" and must notify the "applicant" if it subsequently appears that this estimate may be exceeded.


(3) The fees imposed under this section constitute fees imposed by SARS within the meaning of section 5(1)(h) of the SARS Act, and constitute funds of SARS within the meaning of section 24 of that Act.


(4) If there is more than one "applicant" for a ruling in respect of a "proposed transaction" SARS may, upon request by the "applicants", impose a single prescribed fee in respect of the "application".
