Becoming Directly Authorised

Take control with SimplyBiz by your side

As a member of a network, or if you're new to the industry, you might be considering if direct authorisation is the right option for you. With much to think about, the prospect of becoming directly authorised can be overwhelming - but this need not be the case. 

Our specialist applications team have helped over 3,000 firms become directly authorised and your dedicated application manager will assist you in completing your FCA application to the highest specification, ensuring the process is as smooth as possible. You can use our online tracking facility to monitor the status of your application and you can contact your application manager at any time to discuss any concerns.

We've worked with our Members to develop a formula that gives you complete control of your business as a directly authorised firm, whilst receiving the compliance and business support of a professional and proficient organisation, supporting you in every aspect of your business. As a support service provider, we don't interfere in the way you run your business, we ensure you have access to all the advice, tools and resources you need to be compliant and successful.

To find out if direct authorisation is suitable for you, contact one of our development team for an informal discussion on 01484 439128.

Testimonials

"Overall a great service much superior to my old network. I enjoyed my time with my old network and it was a tough decision for me to leave them. However, I have never looked back or regretted my decision for me to leave. I currently have other companies on my case to jump ship and leave SimplyBiz but they have been told that they are wasting their time. Keep up the good work!"
