1Regulation 102 of the Money Laundering Regulations provides the FCA with the power to charge fees to persons registered with the FCA under the Money Laundering Regulations to recover the cost of carrying out its functions under those regulations. The FCA charges a fee for registration forms submitted to it. The FCA also charges an annual periodic fee. The purpose of this Appendix is to set out the fees relating to cryptoasset businesses registered with the FCA under the Money Laundering Regulations. The fees for persons registered under the Money Laundering Regulations that are not cryptoasset businesses, authorised persons or otherwise registered with the FCA are set out in FEES Appendix 3.
1The application fee which will be payable by a cryptoasset business applying for registration in the register maintained by the FCA under regulation 54(1A) of the Money Laundering Regulations is set out in FEES Appendix 4 Annex 1.
