Our expertise

We have assisted a significant number of credit firms in obtaining authorization and continue to provide ongoing support to a broad portfolio of credit clients. Our services cater to various needs, whether it's for hiring, leasing out goods, offering sales on credit/finance, or lending money. Our team of compliance consulting experts is well-prepared to support firms across the entire leasing spectrum, including car leasing, asset leasing to sole traders, and vehicle leasing, among others.

Firms aiming to engage in credit leasing or financial services activities must first secure authorization to proceed. This process can involve applying for Limited Permission, Full Authorization, or registering as an Appointed Representative under a principal firm already authorized. If you're uncertain about the best path for your business, we're here to guide you towards the most suitable option based on your business model.

After securing authorization, firms must adhere to the regulatory requirements to maintain their authorization status and continue providing regulated services. If you're seeking authorization for the first time or in need of a new compliance partner for your ongoing requirements, we're eager to collaborate with you and offer our support throughout the process.
