Finance Scheme 2021/22

The Law Society is pleased to advise that, following a tendering process, it has again partnered with Bank of Ireland as an exclusive provider of a facility for members and firms who wish to finance payment for their professional indemnity insurance, practising certificates, preliminary tax or pension contributions.

Bank of Ireland is very aware of the financial calls on solicitors and their practices at this time of year and, with this in mind, has a range of short and long term financial solutions to meet your needs.

Short term lending rates

Bank of Ireland can provide short term finance for up to 11 months to members and firms.

You must have a proven credit track record and meet standard lending criteria, so the cost of large annual payments can be spread over up to 11 months.

The scheme offers a highly competitive unsecured rate of 5.58% (2021: 5.75%) and has a minimum loan amount of €5,000. Repayments vary depending on amount borrowed. The table below shows some examples:
