Paragraph 23 of Schedule 1ZA16 of2 the Act,7regulation 92 of the Payment Services Regulations, 20 regulation 59 of the Electronic Money Regulations7and article 25(a) of the MCD Order20 enable the FCA16 to charge fees to cover its costs and expenses in carrying out its functions.

Periodic fees, which will normally be payable on an annual basis, will provide the majority of the funding required to enable the appropriate regulator16to undertake its statutory functions.16161616
FEES 2.1.7GRP
The key components of the appropriate regulator fee 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 appropriate regulator's financial management and reporting framework;(b) the appropriate regulator's budget; and(c) adjustments for audited variances between budgeted and actual expenditure in the previous accounting year, and reserves movements
FEES 2.1.8GRP
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).

By basing fee-blocks on categories of business, the appropriate regulator aims to minimise cross-sector subsidies. The membership of the fee-blocks is identified in the FEES provisions relating to the type of fees concerned.
