Managing Solicitor’s role re finances

A managing solicitor must be satisfied that accounts procedures are being followed, check that the returns being submitted are accurate and sign a confirmation that they are satisfied of this.

To assist in the checking procedure, please see the following:

Local Bank Reconciliation and Expenditure Returns

The totals at A, B & C should be the same. If these are not the same, then further investigation is required.                    

Petty Cash Returns

The ‘Balance on hands on the last day of the month’ and the ‘Actual cash on hands in the petty cash box’ should be the same. This requires a physical check on the cash in the petty cash box. If these do not balance, then further investigation is required.          

Cash Receipts

The ‘Balance on hands on the last day of the month’ and the ‘Actual cash on hands in the cash box’ should be the same. This requires a physical check on the cash in the cash box. If these do not balance, then further investigation is required.       

If there are any irregularities, please contact the Higher Executive Officer in Finance Unit immediately.
