Fidelity Fund Certificates
Practitioners are required to obtain an Attorneys Fidelity Fund Certificate each year. This certificate, without which one is not permitted to practise, is issued on behalf of the Fund by a practitioner’s statutory law society upon receipt of a completed application form.
Application procedure and guidelines
Trust current account banking is regulated by section 78(1) of the Attorneys Act 53 of 1979. The Attorneys Fidelity Fund and the profession have negotiated special arrangements on a national basis with most of the commercial banks.
Refunds to practitioners – Trust Account Costs
