PROF TP 1 Transitional provisions

(6) Handbook provision: coming into force


PROF 4.1.2 R


The FCA considers that the issue by an exempt professional firm of a letter to a client on a letterhead that includes a statement that it is "authorised" will be in breach of PROF 4.1.2 R. This includes a statement such as:'This firm is authorised in the conduct of investment business by [name of recognised professional body] under the Financial Services Act 1986.' However, an exempt professional firm which has been authorised for investment business by a recognised professional body under the Financial Services Act 1986 may continue to use stocks of notepaper and other material that discloses its status under that act, provided that it strikes through the disclosure statement.
