The Big Debate: Should Reporting Accounting for Solicitors be abolished?

What's it about?

ACCA West Midlands network are delighted to inform you about the forthcoming event in partnership with Higgs and Sons Solicitors and ILFM. This event is a panel debate between the ACCA, ILFM and SRA to discuss the recent changes from The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) on the announcement to scrap the annual accountant's report as part of a move to reform regulation of the profession.

The proposal was part of a wide-ranging package of measures around the regulation of solicitors and firms set out in a policy paper entitled "Approach to Regulation and its Reform." The aims behind the measures included removing unnecessary regulatory barriers and restrictions, to encourage competition, innovation and growth in the sector, and reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens and costs.

The event will be hosted by Frances Donovan one of the UK's premier broadcasters and much respected anchor of sports programming including BBC Sports News for BBC Breakfast, the BBC News Channel and BBC World.

Frances will co-ordinate the panel of experts debating whether reporting Accounting for Solicitors be abolished?
