Making the FCA Application for Consumer Credit Easier

The CCA would like to remind our members about the FCA's step-by-step guides for consumer credit firms completing authorisation applications.

These eleven handy guides are introduced by well-known business advisor and presenter, Nick Hewer and they aim to support firms in completing their application for full or limited permission using the FCA's Connect application system.

Each short video is available with accompanying text (and include printed PDF versions) and cover areas that firms have requested further information on including:

  • an overview of the application
  • what details are required
  • permission types and fees
  • the consumer credit supplement
  • disclosure of significant events
  • systems and controls
  • compliance
  • personal information
  • owners and influencers
  • supporting documents
  • firm declaration

To see the videos, visit the FCA's website.  Additional support tools such as the Credit Ready pack and Consumer Credit Authorisation Webinars are also available.
