LSB gives approval for the ACCA to start authorising probate activities
The Legal Services Board (LSB) has granted the application of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) to introduce regulatory arrangements for probate activities.
Legal Services Board Chief Executive, Neil Buckley said
“The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is a long-standing approved regulator for probate activities but until now has chosen not to exercise these powers.
Today’s decision introduces the regulatory arrangements which put in place the arrangements to authorise individuals to carry on probate activities.
The ACCA has been recognised as an approved regulator for many years and this technical measure simply provides it the regulatory framework to start regulating and authorising probate activities.”
