FCA Authorization

Under Section 19 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, any person who carries out a "regulated activity" in the UK must be authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and or the Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA).

Both authorised and registered firms must meet certain standards and provide the FCA with information so that they can monitor your business. If you, or your firm, do not meet the FCA requirements, you could be fined or even banned from operating with respect to any financial services.

To apply to become authorised or registered by the FCA you must submit the relevant application forms and meet their criteria.

Whether its to be an Authorised Payment Institution or an e-money license, here at Financial Crime Consultants we prepare all aspects of your application, whether you need assistance right from the start or require an experienced professional to review your application before submission.

Breach of section 19 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 may be a criminal offence and punishable on indictment with a maximum term of two years and/or a fine.

- Impartial advice prior to any application;
