The purpose of this chapter is to set out the requirements on designated professional bodies to pay fees which (with other fee requirements in the Handbook) provide the funding for the FSA's functions.


PROF 6.1.3G

Most of the detail of the fees payable by designated professional bodies is set out in the tables in PROF 6 Annex 1 RR. The provisions of the Annex will vary from one financial year to another. Accordingly a new annex will come into force, following consultation, for each financial year.
