What is an SRA Audit?

An SRA Audit is an essential regulatory requirement for solicitors and law firms in England and Wales that handle client money. Mandated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), these audits are designed to ensure that firms are complying with the SRA Accounts Rules. These rules set out the standards and practices that firms must follow to safeguard client funds.

  • Specialised SRA audit expertise.

  • Enhanced operational efficiency for legal practices.

The Purpose of SRA Audits

The primary goal of an SRA Audit is to protect the interests of clients by ensuring that their money is being managed appropriately by their legal representatives. This includes verifying that:

Client funds are kept separate from the firm’s money.

Client money is available on demand.

Accurate records and accounts are maintained.

Any interest earned on client money is correctly calculated and applied.

By adhering to these practices, law firms demonstrate their integrity and reliability, fostering trust between them, their clients, and the wider legal community.
