Quill’s experienced legal cashiers take the stress out of running your legal accounts, as they are fully compliant with all the latest solicitors’ accounts rules, be it the SRA Accounts Rules, CLC Accounts Code or Scottish Accounts Rules, depending on your location and area specialisms.
Your cashier is employed by us but serves as a dedicated extension of your law practice – working as much or as little as you need on a pay-as-you-go basis. You’ll save on recruitment, training, salary, IT equipment and office space costs associated with employing your own in-house cashier.
Contact your cashier or deputy at any time during the working week and never again experience disruptive staff holiday, sickness or parental leave absences. You decide how much or how little you need of our cashier’s time on an ad-hoc basis, so you run your office efficiently and profitably.
Simply record your solicitors’ fee earning activities and disbursements or send daily e-chits and your cashier will handle the rest.

I reckon I’m saving around £15,000 every year just on salary costs by outsourcing to Quill and not having to employ a cashier. With in-house employees, there are all manner of other details to bear in mind too, workplace pensions and national insurance amongst them. In terms of avoiding these employment hassles, Quill’s service is priceless.
There’s always someone covering our accounts and we’re always compliant with regulatory guidelines. These are likely to be the two biggest headaches of any law firm operating an in-house cashiering function whereas we don’t even have to think about it.
We’ve been through two full audits by the CLC very successfully. We flew through both of them partially due to how well Pinpoint cashiers do their job. The free software licences for auditors and accountants carry so many time-saving advantages for everyone involved in these routine procedures too.
