Time to leave your network?

In recent years, more and more firms are recognising that direct authorisation is the only way they can get the level of control they need.

Feeling constrained by your network? Spiralling fees? Threat of a restricted model? Heavy-handed supervision?

Sounds like you need to get away from it all and charter a course for change with SimplyBiz.

Each year, over 200 firms trust SimplyBiz to get them from their network to their dream destination, direct authorisation. No one knows the process better than we do - and no one provides support to more directly authorised firms than we do - so relax, put your feet up, and let us take care of everything.

    Once you’ve decided to make the move, the first step is to arrange a meeting with your local representative. Book a meeting with a member of our team and your regional recruitment manager will explain what to expect.

    We'll explain likely timescales, the FCA’s approach to authorisation, and how we support you throughout the process. If needed, we can help you decide on the most appropriate business structure
