Fees are charged according to the number of funds or sub-funds 5operated by a firm as at 31 March 2011.83 Where a new collective investment scheme becomes authorised during a year, fees are charged according to the number of funds or sub-funds 5operated by a firm as at the date of authorisation. Where more than one fund or sub-fund 5is operated,5 the number of funds (not including the umbrella 5or parent fund) produces a 'fund factor' in accordance with the table above,5 which is then applied to a basic fee to produce one total fee per operator 5. Fund factors are applied per operator 5rather than per scheme 5so that the fees relate to the number of funds rather than the number of schemes5. This means that, for example, an authorised fund manager5 of three schemes 5pays the same as an operator 5or authorised fund manager 5of one scheme 5with three sub-funds 5(as only the sub-funds 5are counted).

Schemes5 set up under section 264 of the Act are charged according to the number of funds or sub-funds 5which a firm is operating and marketing into the UK as at 31 March immediately before the start of the period to which the fee applies. For example, for 2010/117fees a reference to 31 March means 31 March 2010.7
