FAO Alex Watts: Completing form N1. I understand the Amount

FAO Alex Watts: Completing form N1. I understand the 'Amount claimed' and the 'Court fee' and presumably as the court fees accumulate, should judgement be made in my favour then the defendant will be liable for all the court fees incurred by the claimant. Do I however need to state in N1 that I will be looking for cost recovery (my time @£18 per hour) plus travel expenses etc or is this something that comes later on?
