Are you sufficiently close to a differential GPS base station to justify an
accuracy of <1 m?

After conversion to GK grid coordinates, are you sure no grid interpolation
is needed? Just converting to grid coordinates is nothing more than a
mathematical exercise. But if you want cadastral coordinates, usually a grid
interpolation has to be performed. How accurate is the interpolation?
