Accounting Reports

Regulation 16 (1) of the Legal Profession (Accounts and Records) Regulations 1999 requires every attorney-at-law to deliver an accountant’s report to the Council for each year unless he or she files a declaration which satisfies the Council that it is unnecessary or impractical for him or her to do so.

  1. Maintaining an accurate register showing the status of the accounting reports of attorneys.
  2. Making recommendations with a view to improving the format and accuracy of the register.
  3. Making recommendations with a view to improving compliance with the relevant regulations.

Members of the committee include:

  • Mr. Walter Scott, Q.C.
  • Mrs. Audrey Welds
