Considering establishing an Alternative Business Structure (ABS)?

We have launched a survey to gauge the level of interest in becoming a BSB-regulated ABS and what those ABS might look like.

The survey will only take a few minutes to complete, so if this is something you are considering please do take the take time to complete it. Your response will help us to design our authorisation processes and ensure that applications will go smoothly. All replies will be treated in the strictest confidence and analysis will be carried out in a way that ensures no individual information or comments can be identified.

Take the survey.

An ABS is a type of entity permitted under The Legal Services Act 2007 which has a mix of lawyer and non-lawyer owners and managers. We applied to the Legal Services Board in April to become a Licensing Authority of ABSs.
