SRA Handbook

Interest

Version 19 of the Handbook was published on 1 October 2017. For more information, please click "History" above.

Rule 16: Interest

16.1

The SRA may consider an application for a supplementary grant by way of a sum in lieu of lost interest on a principal grant. Such interest will be calculated in accordance with the rates prescribed from time to time by the SRA. This will normally be calculated from the day the loss which was the subject of the principal grant was incurred, up to the next working day after payment of the principal grant. Such payment will take into account that a grant is a gift and is therefore not subject to tax.

16.2

Where the application for the principal grant is in respect of a failure to redeem a mortgage, the SRA may also make a grant in respect of the additional interest accrued to the mortgage account as a result of the defaulting practitioner's failure to redeem.
