Calculation of the money advice levy and debt advice levy

FEES 7A.3.3 R

1The SFGB money advice levy and SFGB debt advice levy are each calculated as follows:

  1. (1)

    identify each of the activity groups set out in Part 1 of FEES 7A Annex 1R and Part 1 of FEES 7A Annex 2R that apply to the business of the firm for the relevant period (for this purpose, the activity groups under FEES 7A Annex 1R are defined in accordance with Part 1 of FEES 4 Annex 1AR and the activity groups under FEES 7A Annex 2R are defined in accordance with Part 1 of that Annex);

  2. (2)

    calculate, for each of those activity groups identified in (1), the amount payable in the way set out in FEES 7A.3.4R;

  3. (3)

    add each of the amounts calculated under (2);

  4. (4)

    work out whether a minimum fee is payable under Part 2 of FEES 7A Annex 1R and if so how much;

  5. (5)

    add together the amounts calculated under (3) and (4);

  6. (6)

    modify the result as indicated by (if applicable) FEES 4.2.7ER, FEES 4.2.7FR, FEES 4.2.7GR, FEES 4.2.7HR, FEES 4.2.7IR, FEES 4.2.7JG and FEES 4.2.7KR;

  7. (7)

    apply any applicable payment charge specified in FEES 4.2.4R to the amount in (6), provided that:

    1. (a)

      for payment by direct debit, successful collection of the amount due is made at the first attempt by the FCA; or

    2. (b)

      for payment by credit transfer, the amount due is received by the FCA on or before the due date; and

  8. (8)

    make the calculations using information obtained in accordance with FEES 4.4 in the case of FEES 7A Annex 1R and Part 3 of FEES 7A Annex 2R in the case of Part 2 of that Annex.

FEES 7A.3.4 R

1The amount payable by a firm with respect to a particular activity group is calculated as follows:

  1. (1)

    calculate the size of the firm’s tariff base for that activity group using:

    1. (a)

      the tariff base calculations in Part 3 of FEES 4 Annex 1AR, Part 3 of FEES 4 Annex 11 and Part 2 of FEES 7A Annex 2R; and

    2. (b)

      the valuation date requirements in Part 5 of FEES 4 Annex 1AR, Part 3 of FEES 4 Annex 11R and Part 3 of FEES 7A Annex 2;

  2. (2)

    use the figure in (1) to calculate which of the bands set out in the table in Part 1 of FEES 7A Annex 1R and Part 4 of FEES 7A Annex 2R the firm falls into;

  3. (3)

    add together the fixed sums, as set out in the table in Part 1 of FEES 7A Annex 1R and Part 4 of FEES 7A Annex 2R, applicable to each band identified under (2);

  4. (4)

    the amount in (3) is the amount payable by the firm with respect to that activity group.

FEES 7A.3.5 R

1For the purposes of FEES 7A.3.4R:

  1. (1)

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

    1. (a)

      it has reasonable grounds for believing that the costs of identifying the firm’sUK business separately from its non-UK business in the way described in Part 3 of FEES 4 Annex 1AR and Part 1 of FEES 4 Annex 11R are disproportionate to the difference in fees payable; and

    2. (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;

  2. (2)

    for a firm which has not complied with FEES 4.4.2R (information on which fees are calculated) or FEES 4.4.8D (Information relating to payment services and the issuance of electronic money) for this period, the SFGB money advice levy and SFGB debt advice levy is calculated using (where relevant) the valuation or valuations of business applicable to the previous period, multiplied by the factor of 1.10.

FEES 7A.3.6 R

1The modifications in Part 3 of FEES 4 Annex 2AR and Part 7 of FEES 4 Annex 11R apply.

Amount payable by the Society of Lloyds

FEES 4 rules incorporated into FEES 7A by cross-reference

FEES 7A.3.8 G

1The FCAHandbook provisions relating to the SFGB money advice levy and SFGB debt advice levy are meant to follow closely the provisions relating to the payment of periodic fees under FEES 4.3.1R. For brevity, not all of these provisions are set out again in FEES 7A. In some cases, certain FEES 4 rules are applied to the payment of the SFGB money advice levy and SFGB debt advice levy by individual rules in FEES 7A. The rest are set out in the table in FEES 7A.3.10R.

FEES 7A.3.9 R

1The rules set out in the table in FEES 7A.3.10R and any other rules in FEES 4 included in FEES 7A by cross-reference apply to the SFGB money advice levy and SFGB debt advice levy in the same way as they apply to periodic fees payable under FEES 4.3.1R.

Part 1

R

1This table shows how the FCA links the regulated activities for which a firm has permission to activity groups (fee-blocks). A firm can use the table to identify which fee-blocks it falls into based on its permission for the purposes of the SFGB debt advice levy applicable to each activity group (fee-block).

Activity group

SFGB debt advice levy payer falls in the activity group if:

A.2 Home finance providers and administrators

It falls under activity group A.2 as defined in Part 1 of FEES 4 Annex 1AR.

CC.3 Consumer credit lending

Its permission is in relation to the following regulated activities:

- entering into a regulated credit agreement as lender (article 60B(1) of the Regulated Activities Order);

- exercising, or having the right to exercise, the lender’s rights and duties under a regulated credit agreement (article 60B(2) of the Regulated Activities Order);

which is carried on by way of business and relates to the following specified investments:

(a) a regulated credit agreement (excluding high-cost short-term credit, a home credit loan agreement and a bill of sale loan agreement);

(2) The tariff base for an incoming EEA firm or an incoming Treaty firm is the same as set out above but limited to the regulated activities of the firm which are carried out in the United Kingdom, except those provided on a cross border services basis, and should be reported to the FCA as required by FEES 4.4.1R and FEES 4.4.2R. The valuation date is in accordance with the CC.3 valuation date in Part 3.
