FEES 4 Annex 2A 57711FCA Fee rates and EEA/Treaty firm modifications for the period from 1 April 2018 to 31 March 201918

R

20Part 1

This table shows the tariff rates applicable to each of the fee blocks set out in Part 1 of FEES 4 Annex 1A R.

(1)

For each activity group specified in the table below, the fee is the total of the sums payable for each of the tariff bands applicable to the firm's business, calculated by multiplying the value of the firm's tariff base by the rate applicable to each tranche of the tariff base, as indicated.

(2)

A firm may apply the relevant tariff bases and rates to non-UK business, as well as to its UK business, if:

(a)

it has reasonable grounds for believing that the costs of identifying the firm's UK business separately from its non-UK business in the way described in Part 3 of FEES 4 Annex 1A R are disproportionate to the difference in fees payable; and

(b)

it notifies the FCA in writing at the same time as it provides the information concerned under FEES 4.4 (Information on which fees are calculated), or, if earlier, at the time it pays the fees concerned.

(3)

For a firm which has not complied with FEES 4.4.2R8 (Information on which fees are calculated) for this period:

(a)

the fee is calculated using (where relevant) the valuation or valuations of business applicable to the previous period, multiplied by the factor of 1.10; and11

(b)

an additional fee of £250 is payable, unless the firm is a PRA-authorised person in which case an additional fee of £125 is payable instead.11
