Mitigating accounts rule breaches, keeping client money safe and dealing with residual balances, are just some of the challenges a COFA may encounter when going about their job on a day-to-day basis.

Ideal for experienced and new COFAs alike, this in-person course will provide you with an in-depth look at the SRA Accounts Rules as they relate to your role as the Compliance Officer for Finance & Administration. You will receive practical advice relating to the high-risk areas that the SRA are concerned about and guidance on best practice in relation to handling client money.

Led by reporting accountant Ian Johnson and SRA Accounts Rules specialist Luke Dickinson, this session will include roundtable discussions, practical case studies and the opportunity to have your questions answered by the experts.
