If in the special circumstances of any liquidation it shall at any time, or from time to time, appear to the judge that it is proper to place it on a higher or lower class, he will so place it accordingly.

If it shall appear to the judge that in the special circumstances of any liquidation it is proper to add to or deduct from the amount of remuneration provided by the scale, he will make such addition or deduction accordingly.

If during the progress of a liquidation it shall appear to the judge expedient so to do, he will sanction payments to the liquidator on account of his remuneration.

For this purpose the judge will estimate the amount of such remuneration as well as circumstances will admit, and will pay to the liquidator either the whole of such estimated remuneration or such part thereof as to the judge shall seem reasonable.
