Since the FCA first began to regulate consumer credit in April 2014, we’ve helped hundreds of firms navigate these new and evolving requirements. Because we understand the impacts and obligations of regulation we can assist firms to plan and develop their operational model so that regulatory matters are taken into consideration from the outset.
We also routinely assist firms in the consumer credit sector to prepare and apply for authorisation (both for their business and key individuals) and we provide practical support and advice to assist firms to develop a robust compliance infrastructure including sales, administration, debt solutions and arrears management.
We provide support on a wide range of regulated activities from credit broking through to credit lending, consumer hire, debt adjusting, debt administration and debt collection and we work with established as well as start-up businesses; those already regulated and those just setting out.
The businesses we support come in all shapes and sizes, from traditional premium finance as an addition to insurance broking, financing purchases (such as motor trade or white goods – leasing, hire, personal or business contracts, etc.) through to newer, innovative business models such as financial management and credit score tools.
Whatever shape your business and whatever type of assistance or degree of advice you need, we tailor our services to your requirements; whether that’s ongoing support or a one-off service. We believe in working with you to help develop practical compliance processes and solutions which support your business to develop.
