ShirePF are the strategic partner to the Law Society and its members for business finance, providing funding facilities to cover cash-flow pinch points.

Brand new portal to spread your SRA Practising Certificate fees over 10 months.

As the strategic partner to the Law Society for business finance, Shire Professional Funding is focused on showing their genuine commitment and keep their promise of serving the legal profession in everything they do.

The team has been working tirelessly to ensure law firms’ Practising Certificate renewal process will be as smooth as possible this year. A new spread payment portal has been delivered in time and launched live on 1st October, similar to what was available to law firms in the past, but vastly improved.

SRA fees represent a large expense that a legal practice could face annually, resulting in reduced working capital for other important areas of the business.

ShirePF can help spread the cost of your fees over 10 months, so that you can avoid significant troughs in your firm’s cash-flow.

Apply online through ShirePF’s brand new portal for spread payments:

Key benefits:

  • spread your SRA fees over 10 months
  • simple application with an instant decision
  • payment is made directly to the SRA
  • maintain working capital for other areas of your practice
  • your first payment is taken 30 days after your agreement is signed

The portal will be accessible once you have applied for your firms' Practising Certificate through your MySRA login - there will be link from the confirmation page.
