In-house training course on the new SRA Accounts Rules - enforced November 2019

The new SRA Accounts Rules are enforced from 25th November 2019  The new Rules are substantially changed from the 2011 Rules, following a major review by the SRA.

It is vital for partners, fee earners and accounts/cashier staff to remain fully up to date. As well as addressing the new regulatory requirements, the formal but interactive training course aims to improve efficiency, cashflow and profitability and covers:

  • An overview of the 2011 and 2019 Rules
  • The recent changes to the Rules
  • Advice on how to comply with the Rules in a practical manner, the necessary systems to implement and how fee earners should work effectively with accounts staff
  • Common breaches and how to avoid them
  • What the Reporting Accountant and the SRA will be looking for
  • The role of the COFA

We lecture regularly for The Law Society, local Law Societies, MBL Seminars, at our public training courses and also in-house at individual law firms.
