SRA Accounts Rules
This one day workshop provides a full review of the SRA Accounts Rules 2011
This day is particularly valuable for those looking for a refresher course or who are new to legal finance. Cashiers are often involved in the preparation of the COFA report and a sound knowledge of the rules would be a distinct advantage for both this and when dealing with the Reporting Accountant and the Annual Accounts Report.
The training gives a thorough grounding in all aspects of the rules with workshops and discussions throughout the day. Emphasis is put on the practical application of the Rules and in particular how this is attained in the practices represented in each group. Participation from the delegates is actively encouraged in particular using their knowledge of the rules through group or open discussions.
The basic topics covered are:
- Principles of SRA Accounts Rules and Code of Conduct
- COFA and COLP and the impact on the Cash Office role
- Client Account and Client Money
- Use of Client Account
- Client Monies Withheld from Client Account
- Operating a Client's Own Account
- Interest Rules
- What is a bill? What is an agreed fee?
- Office Monies and Professional Disbursements
- Bank Reconciliations
- LAA (In brief and AR's only)
- Accounting Systems and Records including Central Register
6 CPD points can be claimed and lunch is provided.

"Well worth attending for both refreshing and updating your knowledge of Solicitors Accounts Rules".
"An excellent way of learning new/refreshing current skills. A relaxed but very professional and positive production".
