The Solicitors Accounts Rules are laid out by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) within their standards and regulations which were last updated effective 25th November 2019.
Included within these rules are requirements for obtaining and delivering an accountant’s report which covers the need for an annual audit of the firm’s client money.
Unless exempt, solicitors have six months from the end of their accounting period to obtain an accountant’s report.
As a qualified firm of auditors, Jacobs Allen’s associated business, JA Audit, undertakes this work and produces the necessary reports, including submission to the SRA where required.
Why choose us?
We aim to make the audit process as stress-free and smooth as possible and work with you to obtain access to the records of the firm and select our audit samples and provide a list of information required for our work in advance.
We discuss the information required with you to ensure that there are no issues in obtaining this and then agree on a timetable for receipt of information and the onsite work.
We understand there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to this work. Our specialist team recognises that each business is different, and we tailor our approach, working with clients to maintain and improve compliance, whilst supporting the owners to maximise profitability.
