SRA Accounts Rules changes – what do they mean for you?

Start date: March 22, 2018 8.00am registration and breakfast for an 8.30am start

This year sees the single biggest change in the SRA Accounts Rules in over 20 years. The number of rules is being dramatically reduced from 52 to a mere 13!

After a lengthy consultation process, the SRA has finished rewriting the rules – the third and final phase of their Outcomes Focused-Regulation (OFR) project. The likely date for the new SRA Accounts Rules to come into force is 1 November 2018, although no specific date is confirmed.

One of your primary responsibilities as your firm’s COFA is to ensure compliance with the SRA Accounts Rules, record any breaches of the rules and report any material breaches to the SRA. It is therefore essential to your role that you are both fully up-to-date with the Accounts Rules and that you plan well in advance for upcoming changes in the rules.

Please therefore join us for the first in our 2018 COFA breakfast series. You will hear about the key changes between the SRA Accounts Rules 2018 and the 2011 version, the practical implications of each, and recommended steps to avoid breaching the new rules.

Places are limited so book promptly to avoid disappointment.
