Speaker - Trevor Hellawell

As the new, more relaxed, SRA Standards and Regulations 2019 get ever closer, the role of COLP is becoming a degree more onerous and other alterations to the operating framework have increased the pressures on them considerably.

This seminar will look at recent developments and will consider the role of the COLP afresh in the light of them. They include a new focus on AML/TF risk assessments driven by recent SRA thematic reviews, key issues arising from the GDPR in practice as well as changes to the Codes of Conduct, Accounts Rules, the Transparency Regulations, Criminal Finances Act 2017, SRA logo, some suggestions as to how to deal with VAT on disbursements and the changes to the structures of practice that are occurring already through SRA waivers.

This seminar will look at the following topics:

  • The role of the COLP generally
  • Rule changes and their implications:
    • Changes to the Practicing Environment
      • Codes of Conduct
      • Structures of Practice
      • Waivers
      • Accounts Rules (in outline)
    • Key GDPR issues for the practice
    • CFA 2017
    • Transparency Rules 2018
