Budget & Levy

The SLCC is funded by a levy paid by legal professionals operating in Scotland. Under the terms of the Legal Profession and Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 2007, we are required to consult with the professional organisations about our proposed budget for the next financial year. Following the consultation, the budget will be agreed and then laid before the Scottish Parliament.

The SLCC's financial year runs from 1 July to 30 June.

The professional organisations are:

  • The Law Society of Scotland (LSS)-Conveyancing and Executry Practitioners Levies are collected by the LSS
  • The Faculty of Advocates (FoA)
  • The Association of Commercial Attorneys (ACA)

If you have any further questions on the budget and levy, please contact us.
