Chicken or Egg

Some clients but not all seemed to have received yet another message (posted 4pm Friday) on the e-portal with regards to applying for new account numbers. The problem seems to be that until the documentation is completed and returned in the good old fashion way “in the post!’ new account numbers will not be issued !
How then can new or existing firms with new offices make Legal Aid applications on or after the 14th July without these account numbers. The letter also goes on to ask that if firms have been issued new account numbers via their Relationship Managers can you let them know.
So what came first the Contract or the Account Number ?
Please check your e-portal fro such messages if you fall into the above criteria.
