SimplyBiz is the UK's largest provider of regulatory and business support to directly authorised advisers, and joining us couldn't be easier.
Our support is available for just 2.5%+VAT* of your annual turnover, and our fees are guaranteed for the lifetime of your membership.
Going Directly Authorised for the first time?
If you're currently an appointed representative with a network or new to the industry, we will guide you step by step throughout the FCA's authorisation process, ensuring your application is of the highest standard and we'll act as a liaison between you and the FCA to ensure your application is processed as efficiently as possible. We'll provide practical advice on the best company structure to suit you and ensure you have all the requirements in place for a successful application. According to the latest figures form the FCA, we are now responsible for over 30% of applications to the regulator, so you can be assured you're in safe hands!
Already Directly Authorised?
If you are already directly authorised then the process is even simpler. Complete our engagement form and you can start to enjoy the benefits of being a member of SimplyBiz straight away.
