SRA Accounts Rules: Achieving Compliance

The last 18 months or so has seen a period of enormous change for compliance and this will continue into the foreseeable future as the legal market evolves and creates new opportunities.

Since the introduction of the new SRA Handbook, many people have been spending much of their time getting to grips with the idea of outcomes focused regulation. Many saw 1 January 2013 as being the last 'key compliance date', as this was when COLPs and COFAs came into effect.

There is still a great deal to consider beyond this.

Don’t get caught out by the new requirements as the consequence of non compliance can be severe.

This interactive course will cover:

  • The key principles behind the SRA Accounts Rules and the responsibility for compliance
  • An overview of the SRA Accounts Rules and changes brought about by the 2011 Rules
  • Common breaches of the Rules - our experience of common mistakes, how to spot them and how to avoid them
  • The role of the COFA and guidance on reporting to the SRA
  • A guide to key systems and controls, including bank reconciliations and client file reviews
  • Dealing with profit costs, disbursements and VAT
  • Common compliance failings
  • Other hot topics, including how to spot fraud and prevention considerations
