The Consumer Credit market is extremely diverse. Whether you are looking to offer sales on credit/finance, to hire or lease out goods, or to lend money, a consumer credit license could be for you. We work with lenders and brokers across all major sectors, helping them to get authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), manage their ongoing compliance obligations, and reduce their regulatory risk. 

We have eased the compliance burden for numerous consumer credit firms in sectors ranging from motor sales, healthcare and agriculture to retail, training, and utilities. As compliance experts, we can help you understand the risks and options around debt limitations, complaint handling, and pre-contractual issues such as affordability. 

Whatever you need help with whether it be, management control, governance, managing customer data protection, or support with your ongoing compliance surrounding marketing and financial promotion rules, we offer timely, practical advice. Our team is made up of industry practitioners, compliance professionals, subject matter experts and ex-FCA employees and we are in continuous communication with the regulator to ensure we have the inside track on all developing regulations. Together our experts developed our authorisation application process, so we’re perfectly poised to help you prepare your business for the next step.
