Barristers and Incorporation

  • From 5 January 2015 the BSB will accept applications for Barristers to operate as “Barrister only entities”. With the first applications expected to be accepted by April 2015.

  • The BSB anticipate that the single person entity will be the most popular of the available options. However there is scope for more complex entities.

  • It is believed the BSB will seek designation as a licensing authority for Alternative Business Structures (see below), with the application being submitted to the LSB within the first quarter of 2015. This will allow Barristers to practice through a limited company where some shares are held by a lay person (E.g. non-earning spouse).

  • If you require further information then please use our enquiry form (Click here) for one of the following:
