The FCA has published a supplementary form that firms should complete when applying for authorisation to perform consumer credit regulated activities in addition to other regulated activities. The form, known as a Credit Supplementary Form, should be submitted along with the “build your own application pack”.

The contents of the form cover:

  • scope of permission required;
  • fees and levies;
  • regulatory business plan;
  • IT self-assessment; and
  • fees.

The section on the regulatory business plan sets out at a high level the information that such a plan should cover although it is important that these are tailored to the applicant’s business.
