Our authorisation and application expertise
All firms looking to carry out financial services activities and offer credit in the UK must be authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The path to authorisation can be complex and many firms will benefit from the support of an experienced compliance partner such as Cosegic Ltd. We have supported firms across the financial services industry since 2003, successfully managing over 1,500 applications, and continuing to assist over 800 clients with our ongoing support services.
The FCA has frequently announced increased levels of scrutiny at the gateway, making it increasingly more difficult for firms to get authorised and submit an application quickly and efficently. If you are looking to get authorised by the FCA, or aren't sure of your current position, we can support you. Once we establish whether you need to be authorised and regulated by the FCA, we determine exactly which 'permissions' you require. Then we help you navigate the authorisation process, providing all the documentation and information you need. Addiitonally, if you are looking to apply for an application such as a Variation of Permission (VoP) or Change in Control (CiC) visit our dedicated webpages to find out more about how we could support you.
