Fees and Charges consultation

On Thursday 10 December we launched a consultation about how we raise some of our revenue.

We are consulting on the fees and charges we currently levy on those who use specific regulatory services such as overseas lawyers, education and training providers and entities.

An online survey and supporting information was provided to key stakeholders to enable them to provide us with their views about what is the fairest way to fund the cost of certain aspects of regulation. This includes the history of how we have been funded and changes that have prompted us to conduct a thorough review.

We want to make sure that fees and charges imposed are fully accountable, transparent and fairly applied.

This consultation is quite separate from the one conducted by the General Council of the Bar on 2016 practising certificate fees under s51 of the Legal Services Act 2007.

Our consultation closes on Monday, 15 February 2016 at 5pm.
