WHATIf you have not already, you need to take the necessary action to gather the required information and ensure its accuracy prior to submission. Submission will involve the Directory Persons details, relevant roles held, professional membership amongst other requirements.

REMEMBERThere is a £250 administrative fee if your submission is not accurate and a change is required later. Additionally, where a data error is reported to the FCA or otherwise comes to light, a fee will be charged.
