We can work with your existing auditors and tax advisors in ensuring that your firm meets its ongoing Capital Adequacy obligations in a compliant and tax efficient manner.


    Under rule 16 of the FCA’s Supervision handbook, all firms have to submit regular reports to the FCA through its online portal GABRIEL.

    Again, Thistle Initiatives has vast experience of assisting firms in this regard including reporting on:

    • • Financial returns
      • Capital adequacy
      • Complaints reporting
      • Close links and controllers
      • Financial crime
