1. New SRA Accounts Rules: Introduction to the Changes (1 Hour CPD)
This webinar focuses on the changes to the rules, which allow more flexibility but also require law firms to make their own professional judgement and decisions on protecting client money. The training therefore has an emphasis on the practical application of the new rules and best practice to help law firms to remain compliant.
2. Disbursement vs Recharge (1 Hour CPD)
This webinar focuses on the correct treatment of disbursements for VAT purposes and recharged overheads. The training therefore has an emphasis on the practical application of both HMRC’s and the SRA definition of disbursement to help law firms to remain compliant. The training will look at recent case law and enable law firms to easily identify what is and what isn’t a disbursement for VAT purposes.
