Practising Certificates Funding For Legal Practices

Legal firms face a number of general annual subscriptions and expenditures, which can put an unnecessary pressure on cash flow. Practising Certificate fees can represent a large expense that a legal practice can face annually.

As a commercial funder dedicated specifically to the legal profession, we work closely with law firms to develop tailored solutions and enable you to spread the cost of your Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) fees over time.

By spreading the cost of your SRA fees over 10 months with an unsecured PC loan from Shire PF, you can avoid significant troughs in your cash flow and ensure working capital is available for other important areas of your business without relying on overdrafts or other expensive credit lines.

Our team has a combined experience of over 100 years working with UK professional practices and finding the right financial solution for each business. We understand the needs of legal firms and are happy to discuss the best options for your firm, allowing you to maintain cash for where you really need it and ensuring your existing cash lines remain unaffected by short-term costs.

Features & Benefits:

  • Funding available up to to circa £5M
  • Spread the cost of your SRA fees over 10 months
  • Consistently competitive rates
  • Funding made available typically within 48 hours and payable directly to you or the SRA on your behalf
