As of November 2015 the SRA have relaxed the previously rigid requirements regarding the submission of SRA accountants reports. In an effort to make solicitors accountants reports more targeted and relevant for firms, accountants will be able use their professional judgement in order to determine if the reports they prepare for solicitors' practices comply with SRA account rules.

In addition to have an increased focus on risks to client money, the SRA changes mean that practices which present little or no risk, such as those firms that hold little to no client money, will now be exempt from obtaining a report from their accountant.

This bite-size webinar, designed with the busy practitioner in mind, is perfect for compliance staff wishing to update their knowledge regarding the exemptions from submitting SRA accountants’ reports, in a quick and efficient way.

Experienced lecturer Katie Jackson will also provide viewers with details on how and where to find additional information regarding these changes, should you wish to further develop your compliance knowledge in this area.
