Scottish Legal Complaints Commission (SLCC) Levy

01 May 2014 | tagged Current issues

The Society collects and pays the SLCC levy in terms of section 27 of the Legal Profession and Legal Aid Act (Scotland) 2007.

We very much appreciate members assistance in the efficient collection and payment of this obligation and there are several key points members should note:

  • We rely upon you to tell us of any changes in your status or personal circumstances to ensure that we invoice you correctly.
  • Those holding a practising certificate on 30 June 2014 will be liable irrespective of unemployment/retirement or other status. For the avoidance of doubt only formal surrender of a practising certificate, including the return of that certificate prior to close of business at 5pm on 27 June 2014, would avoid liability for those currently holding certificates.
  • Formal invoices for payment will be sent out in May 2014.
  • Payment will be due 20 June 2014 to facilitate clearance of payments and onward payment by the Society to the Commission on 30 June 2014.
