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

"In a world of image-is-everything, I have come across many a recruitment agent over the years. Promises not fulfilled, comments not substantiated, systems/procedures that don't manifest themselves. Instead what I have found with you and SimplyBiz is, above all, integrity. What you have said has been based on experience and knowledge and, accordingly, has been based on facts. Facts that have, of course, transpired to be true. The ability to rely on those who know what the DA application process is all about is impossible to cost, but important to value."
