What is A Regulatory Business Plan?

Free FCA Regulatory Business Plan TemplateWhen carrying out a regulated activity, a firm needs to be authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). For certain firms, the FCA authorisation application must be supported by a regulatory business plan. This document must be submitted alongside the application. The aim of the plan is to demonstrate that the firm has the adequate and appropriate resources and controls in place to comply with the relevant rules.

What do the FCA say about the Business Plan?

In the guidance notes that accompany full permission applications, the Financial Conduct Authority request that applicants attach their completed regulatory business plan when submitting their application.

The purpose of this plan is to provide as much information as possible about the company and the activities it wishes to carry on. A business plan should provide in-depth details about the formation, structure, customers, services, products, financials and compliance program.

Whilst there is no set format for the regulatory business plan, the FCA have published a basic sample plan to guide applicants on the main criteria to be included.
