SRA Accounts Rules 2011

On 6 October 2011, the SRA Accounts Rules came into force replacing the Solicitors‘ Accounts Rules 1998. The SRA Accounts Rules forms part of the new SRA Handbook and contains the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) rules which govern the handling of all monies received by solicitors including clients’ money.

The fundamental obligation that must be observed when dealing with client money is to keep all funds belonging to the practice and clients separate and to keep client's money in a bank or building society account identifiable as a client account.

Proper accounting systems must be established with controls over those systems to ensure compliance with the rules. Specific accounting records need to be maintained to show the position with regard to the money held for each client.

As an accredited CPD provider we can design and deliver bespoke in-house training courses tailored to your individual needs or you may prefer to book on to one of our scheduled CPD training courses listed below which are relevant the SRA Accounts Rules:
