The Role & Responsibilities of the COFA and complying with the SRA Accounts Rules

The COFA is responsible for all financial type matters within a firm of solicitors.

Primarily, this is ensuring compliance with the SRA Accountants Rules and complying with the reporting obligations.  It is therefore important that the COFA is aware of what is going on with all things financial and can clearly evidence the required compliance if required to do so.
