A fairer way to pay

A new way of calculating the Practising Certificate Fee according to ability to pay is to be introduced. Stephen Crowne, Chief Executive of the Bar Council, explains.

Addressing a crowd in Worcester, Massachusetts, in autumn 1936, US President Franklin Roosevelt declared: “Taxes shall be levied according to ability to pay”.

Working to Meet Your Needs

Stephen Crowne, Chief Executive of the Bar, explains the new Bar Representation Fee and the works that it funds.

I would guess that if you were asked to identify the highlights of your year, renewing your practising certificate wouldn’t even feature on a long-list. But it is vital to protect and safeguard the infrastructure which allows the Bar to continue to practise and develop. We want to make that process as smooth and as easy as we can for you, and to explain clearly what the money is for, and the value it provides.
