reported those complaints from 1 August 2009 up to and including 1 August 2015.

(2)

The PPI campaign fee is calculated by multiplying the number of complaints cumulatively reported to the FCA under question 17(A) of DISP 1 Annex 1R for the firm from 1 August 2009 up to and including 1 August 2015 by £3.64.

the number of complaints reported to the FCA under question 17(A) of DISP 1 Annex 1R for that firm from 1 August 2009 up to and including 1 August 2015; and
