The FCA will not relieve or refund a PSR fee if after the start of that fee year:42(1) 4a payment system ceases to be a regulated payment system; or4(2) 4an IFR card payment system ceases to be subject to the IFR;4 or(3) 4a person4 ceases to be a direct payment service provider of a regulated payment system or an IFR card payment system4.
If a payment system ceases to be a regulated payment system, or an IFR card payment system ceases to be subject to the IFR4, all direct payment service providers of that system, and the operator of that IFR card payment system,4 must pay any outstanding PSR fees before the system ceases to hold that status.22
If a person4 ceases to be:42(1) 4a direct payment service provider of a regulated payment system or of an IFR card payment system4, it must pay any outstanding PSR fees in respect of that system, before it ceases to be a direct payment system provider of the system; or4(2) 4the operator of a IFR card payment system, it must pay any outstanding PSR fees in respect of that system before it ceases to be the operator of that IFR card payment system4.

(1) 2The FCA may recover a PSR fee as a debt owed to it under paragraph 23 (8) of Schedule 1ZA of the Act.(2) The FCA will consider taking action for the recovery (including interest) through the civil courts.(3) In addition, the FCA or PSR may be entitled to take regulatory action in relation to the non-payment of PSR fees. What action, if any, that is taken by the FCA or PSR will be decided upon given the particular circumstances of the case.8
A person in column (1) of the table in FEES 3.2.7 R37 as the relevant fee payer for a particular activity must pay to the FCA (in its own capacity or, if the fee is payable to the PRA, in its capacity as collection agent for the PRA)57 a fee for each application or request for vetting, or request for support relating to compatibility of its systems with 37FCA systems,7 or admission approval made, or notification or notice of exercise of a Treaty right given, or other matter
38A person must pay the fee in Categories A5 and A6 of FEES 3 Annex 12R for the first submission of a document to the FCA for approval or review in relation to a significant transaction or super transaction. As an exception to FEES 3.2.1R, after that fee is paid, Categories A1 to A4 of FEES 3 Annex 12R specify the fees a person must pay for any further documents submitted for approval or review in relation to the same transaction.
If an application for a Part 4A permission52 (or exercise of a Treaty right) falls within more than one category set out in FEES 3 Annex 1, other than where one of the applications is an application under the benchmarks regulation,52 only one fee is payable. That fee is the one for the category to which the highest fee tariff applies. Where applications are made under the benchmarks regulation, a separate fee will be payable for this application. The relevant fee is set out in
(1) Unless (2), (3)10 or (4)23 applies, the sum payable under FEES 3.2.1 R must be paid by bankers draft, cheque or other payable order.23(2) 15The FCA does not specify a method of payment for a person seeking to:(a) become a recognised body or a designated professional body; or15(b) be added to the list of designated investment exchanges or accredited bodies.15(3) The sum payable under FEES 3.2.1 R by a firm applying for a variation of its Part 4A permission which is not an application
(1) 23If the fee payer (as specified in column (1) of FEES 3.2.7 R) in relation to FEES 3.2.3R (4) is:(a) unable to make a payment by credit or debit card; or(b) permitted to make a paper application rather than an online application for a Part 4A permission in respect of credit-related regulated activities only or a variation of its Part 4A permission to add a credit-related regulated activity;the sum payable under FEES 3.2.1 R can be paid by bankers draft, cheque or other payable
23If FEES 3.2.3AR (1)(a) applies to a fee payer, that fee payer would be expected to notify the FCA of these circumstances in advance of making its payment (and, in any event, no less than 7 days before the date on which the application for a Part 4A permission or the variation of a Part 4A permission is made) unless such notification is impossible in the circumstances, eg, there is a sudden technological failure.

A firm (other than the Society) must send to the FCA (in its own capacity and, if applicable, in its capacity as collection agent for the PRA)12 in writing the information required under FEES 4.4.1 R as soon as reasonably practicable, and in any event within two months, after the date specified as the valuation date in Part 5 of FEES 4 Annex 1AR in relation to 9 fees payable to the FCA6 (or FEES 4.2.7B R where applicable) unless FEES 4.4.2AR applies9.12121227
(1) The following enable the FCA to charge fees to cover its costs and expenses in carrying out its functions:13(a) paragraph 23 of Schedule 1ZA of the Act;13(b) regulation 92 of the Payment Services Regulations;13(c) regulation 59 of the Electronic Money Regulations;13(d) article 25(a) of the MCD Order;1513(e) regulation 21 of the Small and Medium Sized Businesses (Credit Information) Regulations. 13(f) regulation 18 of the Small and Medium Sized Business (Finance Platforms)
3Regulation 92 of the Payment Services Regulations and regulation 59 of the Electronic Money Regulations each provide7 that the functions of the FCA16 under the respective7 regulations are treated for the purposes of paragraph 23 of Schedule 1ZA16 to the Act as functions conferred on the FCA16 under the Act. Paragraph 23(7) 20 however, has not been included 20.7This is 20the FCA's167 obligation to ensure that the amount of penalties received or expected to be received are not

The FCA’s12fees payable will vary from one fee year16 to another, and will reflect the FCA’s12funding requirement for that period and the other key components, as described in FEES 2.1.7G. Periodic fees, which will normally be payable on an annual basis, will provide the majority of the funding required to enable the FCA12to undertake its statutory functions.16161616161616
The key components of the FCA12fee mechanism (excluding the FSCS5levy, the FOS5 levy and case fees, and the CFEB levy5which are dealt with in FEES 5,5FEES 6 and FEES 7)5 are:555(1) a funding requirement derived from:(a) the FCA’s12financial management and reporting framework;(b) the FCA’s12budget; and(c) adjustments for audited variances between budgeted and actual expenditure in the previous accounting year, and reserves movements (in accordance with the FCA’s12reserves policy);(2)
The amount payable by each fee payer will depend upon the category (or categories) of regulated activity or exemption, or other relevant activity applicable to that person (fee-blocks). It will, in most cases, also depend on the amount of the business that person conducts in each category (fee tariffs).
16PRA-authorised persons and persons seeking to become PRA-authorised persons should note that the FCA and the PRA have agreed for the FCA to act as the PRA's collection 12agent for 12PRA fees. Where applicable, both PRA and FCA fees should be paid as a single payment to the FCA, which will receive the payment in its own capacity in respect of FCA fees and in its capacity as collection 12agent for the PRA in respect of the PRA fees. References to this arrangement will be referred
A person shown in column (1) of the table in FEES 4.2.11 R34as the relevant fee payer must pay each periodic fee applicable to it, calculated in accordance with the provisions referred to in column (2) of the applicable50 table, as adjusted by any relevant provision in this chapter:5050(1) in full and without deduction (unless permitted or required by a provision in FEES); and(2) on or before the date given in column (3) of that table, unless FEES 4.2.10 R applies.
A relevant fee payer will be required to pay a periodic fee for every year during which they have the status in column 1 of the table in FEES 4.2.11 R3434 (or in relation to collective investment schemes, for every year during which it is a regulated collective investment scheme) subject to any reductions or exemptions applicable under this chapter. If a person is the relevant fee payer for more than one status listed in column 1 of the table in FEES 4.2.11 R34 (or in relation
49A recognised body may also have obligations to pay fees to the FCA under other rules arising from legislation other than the Act. For example a recognised body may have an obligation to pay a fee as an approved operator of a relevant system under the Uncertificated Securities Regulations 1995 (SI 1995/3272).
(1) (a) 42A firm (other than an AIFM qualifier, an ICVC, a UCITS qualifier, or an issuer of regulated covered bonds) which becomes authorised or registered, or whose permission and/or activities is extended, during the course of the fee year must pay a fee based on its projected valuation for the first twelve months of its new business.(b) This is the valuation provided by the firm in the course of its application or if not provided at that time, the valuation provided subsequently48.(2)
42(1)Identify the tariff rate or rates which will be relevant to the firm as a result of its new or extended permission; and then (2)apply the formula (A+B+C) x D, where:A = the amount arrived at by applying the tariff rates to the firm’s projected valuation for the first twelve months48 of its48 new business, as provided by it in accordance with FEES 4.2.7ER48;B = the A.0 minimum fee, unless already paid;C = any fee that becomes due in AP.0 following the calculation of A; andD
42When a firm receives permission between 1 January and 31 March, its fee for the following fee year starting 1 April will be calculated from:48(a) 48the projected valuation for the first twelve months of its new business that it provided in accordance with FEES 4.2.7ER; or(b) 48an annualised figure based on actual data provided by 30 April in the fee year following obtaining its new or extended permission. 48If the annualised tariff base figure provided under (b) is a cumulative
42For example, suppose the tariff data for a particular permission is based on income for the financial year ending during the calendar year ending 31 December before the relevant fee year starting the following April. A firm is authorised in October and its financial year ends in June. By April, it will not have been able to report on the basis of its financial year. The value of A would therefore cover the period from October to December and the value of B would be two i.e.
42Where the measure is not cumulative (e.g. the number of traders for fee-block A10), the firm must use the figure relating to the valuation date specified in FEES 4 Annex 1R Part 548 (e.g. 31 December for A10)48. Table A sets out the reporting requirements for the key fee-blocks when full48 actual data is not available:Table A: calculating tariff data for second and subsequent years of authorisation when full trading figures are not availableFee-blockTariff baseCalculation where
The FCA34 will not refund periodic fees if, after the start of the period to which they relate:(1) a fee payer ceases to have the status set out in column (1) of the table in FEES 4.2.11 R34; or50(2) a firm reduces its permission or payment services activities 9so that it then falls out of the fee-block previously applied to it;99(but see FEES 2.3 (Relieving Provisions) and FEES 4.3.13 R (Firms Applying to Cancel or Vary Permission Before Start of Period)).
A person need not pay a periodic fee on the date on which it is due under the relevant provision in FEES 4.2.1 R, if:(1) that date falls during a period during which circumstances of the sort set out in GEN 1.3.2 R (Emergencies) exist, and that person has reasonable grounds to believe that those circumstances impair its ability to pay the fee, in which case he must pay it on or before the fifth business day after the end of that period; or(2) unless FEES 4.3.6R (3), 9FEES 4.3.6R

15The fees for funds8 reflect the estimated costs to the FCA of assessing applications and notifications. The level of fees payable in respect of an application or a notification will vary depending upon the provision of the Act under which it is made. This fee is adjusted when the scheme concerned is an umbrella.8
Applications for Part 4A permission (and exercises of Treaty rights) other than in respect of credit-related regulated activities7 are categorised by the 9FCA for the purpose of fee raising as straightforward, moderately complex and complex7 as identified in FEES 3 Annex 1. This differentiation is based on the permitted activities sought and does not reflect the 9FCA's risk assessment of the applicant (or Treaty firm).979
(1) 10Fees for designated credit reference agencies and designated finance platforms11 are set out at FEES 3 Annex 10B. (2) These fees are charged under regulation 21 of the Small and Medium Sized Business (Credit Information) Regulations11 and regulation 18 of the Small and Medium Sized Business (Finance Platforms) Regulations.11
A potential applicant for Part 4A permission15 (or Treaty firm) has the opportunity to discuss its proposed application (or exercise of Treaty rights) with the 9FCA before submitting it formally.2 If an applicant for Part 4A permission15 (or Treaty firm) does so, the 9FCA will be able to use that dialogue to make an initial assessment of the fee categorisation and therefore indicate the authorisation fee that should be paid. 151515922151515159
Application fees for applications for and variations of Part 4A permission in respect of credit-related regulated activities are also set out in FEES 3 Annex 1F. Applications for Part 4A permission in respect of credit-related regulated activities are categorised by the 9FCA for the purposes of fee raising as straightforward, moderately complex and complex as identified in FEES 3 Annex 1, unless the application is for a limited permission.799[Note: PRA-authorised persons may also
(1) The amount payable by each firm will depend upon the category (or categories) of regulated activities or payment services7it is engaged in (fee-blocks)and whether it is issuing electronic money,10 and on the amount of business it conducts in each category (tariff base). The fee-blocks and tariffs are identified in FEES 4 Annex 1AR17 (and guidance on calculating certain of the tariffs is at FEES 4 Annex 12 G and 17FEES 4 Annex 13G15) 17while 23FEES 4 Annex 2AR sets 17 out

A firm which is a member of a group may pay all of the amounts due from other firms in the same group under FEES 4.2.1 R, if:(1) it notifies the FCA (in its own capacity and, if applicable, in its capacity as collection 17agent for the PRA)22 in writing of the name of each other firm within the group for which it will pay; and22(2) it pays the fees, in accordance with this chapter, as a single amount as if that were the amount required from the firm under FEES 4.2.1 R.
If the payment made does not satisfy in full the periodic fees payable by all of the members of the group notified to the FCA22 under FEES 4.3.7 R, the FCA (in its own capacity and, if applicable, in its capacity as collection 17agent for the PRA)22 will apply the sum received among the firms which have been identified in the notification given under FEES 4.3.7R (1) in proportion to the amounts due from them. Each firm will remain responsible for the payment of the outstanding
If a firm pays its fees through an agent outside the scope of FEES 4.3.7 R, the firm is responsible for ensuring that the FCA (in its own capacity and, if applicable, in its capacity as collection 17agent for the PRA)22 is informed that the sum being paid is for that firm's periodic fees.22
For an incoming EEA firm, (excluding MTF and OTF20 operators), 5 or an incoming Treaty firm, the calculation required by FEES 4.3.3 R is modified as follows:(1) the tariffs set out in 23 Part 1 of FEES 4 Annex 2AR17 are applied only to the regulated activities of the firm which are carried on in the United Kingdom; and23(2) those tariffs are modified in accordance with Part 3 of FEES 4 Annex 2AR17. 23

If it appears to the FCA5 or48 the FSCS (in relation to any FSCS levy only) 2 that in the exceptional circumstances of a particular case, the payment of any fee, FSCS levy2,3FOS levy, CFEB levy, SFGB levy or DA levy7 would be inequitable, the FCA5 or48 the FSCS2 as relevant, may (unless FEES 2.3.2B R applies)1 reduce or remit all or part of the fee or levy in question which would otherwise be payable. 483483648348
If it appears to the FCA5 or48 the FSCS (in relation to any FSCS levy only)2 that in the exceptional circumstances of a particular case to which FEES 2.3.1R does not apply, the retention by the FCA5 the FSCS,2 or the CFEB3, as relevant, of a fee, FSCS levy2,3FOS levy, CFEB levy, SFGB levy or DA levy7 which has been paid would be inequitable, the FCA5 the FSCS2 or the CFEB3, may (unless FEES 2.3.2B R applies)1 refund all or part of that fee or levy.4834834836348
1A poor estimate or forecast by a fee or levy 2payer, when providing information relevant to an applicable tariff base, is unlikely, of itself, to amount to an exceptional circumstance for the purposes of FEES 2.3.1 R or FEES 2.3.2 R. By contrast, a mistake of fact or law by a fee or levy 2payer may give rise to such a claim.
1The FCA5or the FSCS2may not consider a claim under FEES 2.3.1 R and/or FEES 2.3.2 R to reduce, remit or refund any overpaid amounts paid by a fee or levy2 payer in respect of a particular period, due to a mistake of fact or law by the fee or levy2 payer, if the claim is made by the fee or levy2 payer more than 2 years after the beginning of the period to which the overpayment relates.
The IML levy is calculated as follows:(1) identify whether activity group CC1 or CC2 applies to the business of the firm for the relevant period (for this purpose, the activity groups are defined in accordance with Part 1 of FEES 4 Annex 1AR);(2) for each of those activity groups, calculate the amount payable in the way set out in FEES 13.2.4R;(3) add the amounts calculated under (2);(4) work out whether a minimum fee is payable under Part 2 of FEES 7 Annex 1R and if so how much;(5)
The amount payable by a firm with respect to a particular activity group is calculated as follows:(1) for a firm in activity group CC1, a £5 flat rate is the amount payable by the firm with respect to that activity group;(2) for a firm in activity group CC2:(a) up to and including £250,000 consumer credit income: £10 is the amount payable by the firm with respect to that activity group; and(b) over £250,000 consumer credit income: £10 + £0.2021 per £ thousand or part £ thousand
For the purposes of FEES 13.2.4R:(1) a firm in activity group CC2 may apply the relevant tariff bases and rates to its non-UK business, as well as to its UK business, if:(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 FEES 4 Annex 11BR are disproportionate to the difference in fees payable; and (b) it notifies the FCA in writing at the same time as it provides the information

Until 31 March 2004 a standard case fee was payable for every chargeable case. From 1 April 2004 to 31 March 2005 the standard case was payable for the third and subsequent chargeable cases. From 1 April 2005 to 31 March 2013 the standard case fee was payable for the fourth and subsequent chargeable cases. FEES 5.5B.12 R does not apply retrospectively to financial years before 1 April 2013.
If a respondent does not pay a case fee payable under FEES 5.5B in full to the FOS Ltd before the end of the date on which it is due, that respondent must pay to the FOS Ltd in addition:(1) an administrative fee of £250; plus(2) interest on any unpaid amount at the rate of 5% per annum above the Official Bank Rate from time to time, accruing on a daily basis from the date on which the amount concerned became due.
This chapter sets out the framework for the funding arrangements of the Financial Ombudsman Service, including, where relevant,25 the method by which fees will be calculated. Details of the actual fees payable will vary from year to year, depending on the annual budget of the Financial Ombudsman Service. These details will be set out in annexes 25to this chapter. New annexes25 will be prepared and consulted on for each financial year.2525
