ICAEW's application to regulate and license further reserved legal services
We have applied to the Legal Services Board (LSB) to become an approved regulator and licensing authority for the further reserved legal services of;
- conduct of litigation*;
- rights of audience*;
- reserved instrument activities*;
- notarial services; and
- administration of oaths.
* Restricted to taxation services only.
ICAEW is eligible to apply under the Legal Services Act 2007. We submitted our application to the LSB on 20 July 2016 after a three-month consultation which closed on 6 May 2016.
We hope to be able to authorise firms and license ABSs within 12 months (subject to the LSB’s timetable).
