Proposed Solicitors Accounts Regulations – What to Expect and How to Prepare

– with Garry Clarke

The proposed new Solicitors Accounts Regulations are currently with the Legal Services Regulatory Authority for consideration. They replace the 2014 Regulations and may potentially commence in January 2023.

These regulations are a modification of what was originally proposed and are the result of extensive consultation with the profession including an expert group within Solicitors Growth.

In this session, Garry Clarke, the Chair of the Regulation of Practice Committee, will take us through the changes mooted and the consequences for everybody in practice from the bookkeeper to the managing partner.

This episode will qualify for 1 hour of Regulatory CPD by e-Learning and will be essential viewing, particularly for those looking to earn Required CPD points before the end of this CPD cycle. 

You will have the opportunity to ask questions Live on the call, however, a replay will be made available once the webinar has finished to rewatch at your convenience. Please join us at 1pm on Wednesday, 7th December 2022.
