Supporting you every step of the way

Permission granted

Prior to submission CCAS can help to ensure that your application meets guidelines and then support you through any consultation with the Regulator. This will make authorisation as smooth and as efficient as possible.

Authorisation involves completing the FCA application process and then a period of consultation which can take from 6-12 months. The time taken depends on the complexity of your business and the state of readiness you have demonstrated.

During the consultation you may be asked to clarify certain points or to submit further information. If you’ve prepared properly then completing the application and the consultation process will be relatively straightforward, if not it can be a lengthy and time consuming process.

Preparing for and completing your application is not something that can be done in a few hours, particularly if there are gaps in your policies and processes. Even with the support of experts such as CCAS you should start to think about completing your application 3-4 months before your landing slot.
