Practising certificate/registration renewals - deadline extended
23 October 2020
This year, we are running practising certificate renewals on a new IT system and with new telephony, which has been particularly challenging against the backdrop of the impact of Covid-19 on us and on the profession.
We know there have been some teething problems and a small number of organisations have experienced technical issues. Therefore, we have decided to extend the renewal period to Friday 20 November.
Practising fees for 2020/21 have now been set. These contribute to the costs of running the SRA, the Law Society, Legal Services Board, Legal Ombudsman, Office for Professional Body Anti-Money Laundering Supervision and Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal.
The individual Compensation Fund contribution for 2020/21 will be £50 (reduced from £60), while the firm contribution will be £950 (down £200 from £1,150).
