Debt Management - AP03 Lapsed Firms
The following email has been received from Denise Sbraga of the Consumer Credit Department at the FCA:
Of the Debt Management Firms we have been monitoring, the nine listed below had their interim permissions lapse at the end of AP03. Where a firm intended to apply but did not, we understand affected clients have been written to.
As before we would expect firms to use the FCA’s publically accessible Interim Permission Consumer Credit Register (see: http://www.fca.org.uk/firms/systems-reporting/consumer-credit-register) as part of their dealings with debt management firms.
Members should show forbearance to any customers affected, and as there has been some confusion with trading names recently, Members may wish to check the status of trading names on the DMC's website, where applicable.
