The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) can seem a pretty intimidating regulator; the rulebook is huge, and often complex. Even the largest businesses sometimes find it difficult to keep up with the constant stream of rule changes, policy documents, and consultation papers. A number of household name groups and prominent individuals have been on the receiving end of large fines and public reprimands for compliance failures.
We have dozens of clients regulated by the FCA. Many of them originally came to us right at the start of their businesses, for professional assistance with their initial applications for FCA authorisation.
We specialise first and foremost in advising the owners and directors of smaller and medium-sized firms how they can achieve full compliance with the FCA rules in a clear and economical way. Additionally, we offer the audit, tax planning and other professional services you would expect of a leading mid-tier City firm.
It is a fact of life that as soon as you become FCA regulated there are fewer firms able to take on your audit.
That does not mean, however, that you should be subjected to much higher audit fees or that you are restricted to the very largest firms.
We are a Top20 firm of chartered accountants with a long standing specialism in auditing and advising small and medium sized financial services businesses. As FCA experienced accountants and auditors, we can offer much better value for money, thereby reducing the costs associated with FCA compliance.
