The regulation of the Consumer Credit regime under the FCA is vastly different to the regime under the Office of Fair Trading (OFT). The requirements are more robust across a number of key areas such as:
The Regulatory Gateway (Authorisation)
Complaints and Redress
Thistle Initiatives offer a comprehensive range of compliance solutions that can help across a range of areas. We have experience in working with a number of consumer credit clients providing a range of solutions to meet their compliance needs.
As a starting point we can provide you with advice and guidance in respect of what the new rules are and what this will mean for your firm. We could provide bespoke guidance on what the FCA’s requirements will be for firms carrying out the various consumer credit activities.
As part of support, we can conduct a Systems and Controls Gap Analysis. This would help your firm identify if it has any gaps in its systems and processes that the FCA would expect under the new regime, and if so, provide compliance solutions to resolve these.
We also offer continuing support through an on-going compliance support service. This means we are able to provide your firm with support across a range of compliance areas, as and when your firm needs assistance, in addition to providing regular on-site audits to help ensure the firm is operating as it is required under the FCA.
Feel free to call us for a no obligation assessment of how our compliance services could be of benefit for your business on
