Advising on the Necessary FCA Permissions
Suitable for financial service providers already directly authorised with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), our compliance consultants can work with your business to ensure you have the correct FCA permissions to continue to provide the products and services you offer.
The FCA Register displays contact details, trading names and the ‘status’ of a firm or individual, such as whether they are directly authorised or FCA-approved and whether they are covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service or the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
As per the Regulated Activities Order 2001, it is the responsibility of all financial service providers to establish whether their activities require FCA authorisation. Our compliance consultants will determine the permissions from the FCA.
Our team are delighted to offer a free, impartial consultation on your compliance requirements, with no obligation to sign up to any of our services.Request a consultation
Professional and efficient Variation of Permission applications
Our experienced and personable compliance officers can handle the submission of Variation of Permissions (VOPs) if it’s deemed that your business lacks a permission or is operating under irrelevant permissions that could be in breach of FCA rules, resulting in enforcement action.
Alternatively, if you are a well-established financial services provider looking to change the scope of your business by adding additional regulated activities, we can prepare and submit a VOP application on your behalf. As with all FCA applications, including a VOP, it is important that you act efficiently and provide the FCA with all the necessary (but not irrelevant) information.
Avail your business of our in-house consultants to expedite your VOP approval process and avoid unwanted delays to the launch of new regulated financial services.
