“The SRA has announced a range of proposed regulatory reforms aimed at making regulation more proportionate and less costly for smaller firms of solicitors. Such proposals include a reduction in the minimum level of professional indemnity insurance. More controversially, the SRA is also proposing to remove the requirement for firms with client accounts to deliver annual accountants’ reports – with COFAs taking the responsibility of certifying that their firm is compliant with the SRA Accounts Rules. See the proposals here: http://www.sra.org.uk/sra/news/press/regulatory-reform-programme.page”.
