Wesleyan Bank logo

The MySRA portal is now officially open, and thousands of solicitors will be starting to apply for their practising certificates for 2020/21.

SRA practising certificates often place additional pressure and strains on cash flow for law firms. In line with the SRA and as the only strategic partner that provides finance to the Law Society and its members, Wesleyan Bank has provided a spread payment facility for these fees for many years, allowing you to maintain your cash flow by spreading the cost over time.

To use this facility, you will need to know the exact amount of your fees, together with the SRA invoice number. Both these details will show on MySRA once the ‘Bill Me’ option has been selected. The invoice number will begin with INV followed by nine digits.

Please note that the minimum amount of fees that Wesleyan Bank can fund is £1,000.

A step-by-step guide on how to apply

Be sure to make a note of the precise amount you need to finance and the SRA invoice number before attempting to apply online. The invoice number will begin with INV followed by 9 digits.

Wesleyan Bank do not guarantee to accept all applications. In the unlikely event yours is declined, you’ll need to pay the SRA in full by the deadline.

If you’d like to use this facility, please apply as soon as possible after Thursday 1 October and remember to include your invoice number on your application. Payment will be made by BACS once your application has been approved.
