How your Practising Certificate Fee (PCF) is compiled

The compulsory PCF funds the expenditure that falls within the 'permitted purposes' as defined by the Legal Services Board (LSB) in accordance with s51 of the Legal Services Act 2007 (LSA) and the rules made thereunder. 

Full details of practising certificate requirements and the Authorisation to Practice process are available on the Bar Standards Board website.
