Practising Certificate Renewals

Practising Certificate Renewals

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) has announced that the practising certificate renewal period this year will run from 1 to 31 October with fees remaining unchanged.

The month-long exercise will bring together key information on solicitors and firms, as well as collecting fees, so solicitors and firms with a mySRA account will need to ensure that their information is up to date before 1 October. Changes to organisation details, such as name, address or the addition of a new office, should be made in mySRA by 1 September 2015 for approval in good time for the October renewals window.

Firms’ authorised signatories and organisation contacts have been advised of the new renewal window dates and the SRA will contact solicitors and firms in September to provide further information in preparation for their application.

Frequently asked questions about practising certificate renewal can be found on the SRA web site together with useful videos and user guides.

So far as fees are concerned, the individual fee will remain at £320. Fees for firms are determined by turnover figures. Compensation Fund contributions also remain unchanged at £548 for firms, and £32 for individuals.
