Regulated Activity Authorisation

If your business carries out a regulated activity, you also must be authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Regulated activities include (among others):

  • Accepting deposits
  • Exchanging electronic funds
  • Dealing or arranging deals in investments
  • Dealing in or advising in relation to regulated mortgage products or life insurance products
  • Operating a peer-to-peer lending platform

Carrying out a regulated activity without FCA authorisation is a criminal offence that could lead to a fine or even a prison sentence. It would also mean that your business contracts would be unenforceable.

Why Choose JMW?

Our team can advise you on the requirements relating to consumer credit and financial services that are relevant to your organisation, and can assist you in completing the initial application to the relevant authority. We can also provide you with ongoing support and documentation to ensure your organisation keeps up to date with regulatory and compliance issues.

We can assist with:

  • FCA applications
  • Structure notes
  • Information memorandums
  • Loan notes
  • Security documents
  • Website terms and policies
  • Commercial contracts and customer terms and conditions 

The Importance of Expert Legal Assistance

It is imperative that a business carrying out regulated activity is authorised by the FCA and that it always adheres to the rules set out by the authority, as failure to do so can result in severe penalties and could impact your future plans and aspirations.

With the right legal help, you can make sure you are always operating in the correct way and can minimise the risk of ever falling foul of any regulations you should otherwise have adhered to.
