The Four Easy Steps


During our fact find call we’ll ask you to provide us with information about your proposed business model. This will allow us to identify any key regulatory risks that you may encounter and allow us to mitigate them for you.


Having thoroughly reviewed your business model, including any changes to your proposed business plan, we will create the required regulatory documents.

The documents include Regulatory Business Plan, Annual Threshold Condition Assessment, Business Continuity Plan, Compliance Monitoring Plan, Financial Crime Policy, and a Treating Customers Fairly Gap Analysis. Each is essential to your application for authorisation.


We provide full support for clients completing an online application for authorisation, including the completion of Form A’s and Controller Forms. Our support doesn’t finish once your application has been completed. We will continue to provide you with expert advice right up until the time that your form is submitted to the FCA for consideration.


Once your application has been assigned to a case officer at the FCA, they will review it and submit their responses. Any communications tend to include clarification on information you have previously provided across your regulatory documents or a request for additional compliance documentation. Scott Robert will support you throughout the whole process.
