Solicitors - When do you need a Client Account Audit?

Making sure you are complying with the Solicitors Accounts Rules is a constant worry for law firm owners. If you are a small solicitors firm, when do you need to start having your Client Account Audited?

  • If you are running a Client Account and
  • If the average amount held in Client Account at the monthly reconciliations across the year is over £10,000 or
  • If at any of the reconciliation dates the amount you hold in Client account exceeds £250,000

Our resident expert on the Solicitors Accounts Rules is Ian Johnson who is the current Chair of the ILFM and Vice Chair of the ICAEW Solicitors Advisory Group which issues guidance to all Reporting Accountants.
