Membership of the CCA provides numerous benefits to firms operating in the consumer credit sector, from representation at a local, national and European level to access to a wide range of advice, industry information and support.
"The opportunities that CCA membership offers, particularly over the last couple of years with changing financial regulations, have been invaluable to Burdett Trading. Their support in terms of legal documentation and dealing with the inherent complexities of the financial services sector has provided us with the confidence to grow the business into the success which it is today."

"The CCA's support has been instrumental in providing guidance over the last few years and more recently, during our FCA authorisation application, they have been absolutely fantastic. We would say that membership of the CCA is essential for any firm operating in the home credit sector and we are proud to be associated with the organisation."
"I don't believe that any firm can operate a legitimate home credit business without the backup of the CCA. For us it would have been a huge struggle to obtain a licence in the beginning without CCA membership and their support. The Association ensures that everything is done by the book. The staff are fantastic and there's always someone who can help out when needed."

"Membership of the CCA is ‘a must’ for any company in the Home Credit Industry. Membership gives you confidence and the knowledge that support and guidance is just a phone call away. Membership offers workshops and seminars where you can meet fellow traders and discuss relevant issues which is invaluable given today’s changing climate."
"From our experience, I would say that membership of the CCA is essential for any firm in the home credit sector. With the ever changing financial regulations and, in particular, the complexities of the current authorisation process, we think we would have probably thrown in the towel by now without the support of the CCA. Meetings and seminars not only ensure that you keep up to date with changes in the financial landscape but they also offer a great opportunity to catch up with other members and share experiences and common issues. Whenever we have a query or need some advice, someone in the team at the CCA is always on-hand to help out. I would definitely recommend joining the CCA!"

"Where do I start? Being a member of the CCA has provided numerous benefits over the years but I'd say that we couldn't have got through the FCA authorisation process without their support. We have just been notified that we are now authorised and we are confident that the CCA will continue to support us during the supervision stage and beyond".
"Our success comes from the fact that we have a loyal customer base who appreciate our understanding of their circumstances and our flexibility in meeting their individual needs. It's important for us that we provide the best service that we can and that means making sure that we have access to all the latest information and complaint materials. I think that without CCA membership it would be impossible for any company running a home credit business to keep up to date with the constant rule changes. The team at the CCA is always available to answer any questions and provide help and guidance. I'm not sure what we'd do without them!".
