On 16 January 2019, the FCA launched a new online portal for mutual societies. The portal provides a gateway to the FCA’s mutuals team, to allow mutual societies to complete tasks online previously managed via post and email. The portal is available to all mutual societies and allows them to:

  • submit annual returns and accounts;
  • submit applications for rule amendments;
  • record charges;
  • register changes to a society’s address; and
  • retrieve recent society documents.
