You’ve come to the right placeThe authorisation process can be complex. We help make it easier. 

Steering you through the process

From our years of experience helping both start-ups at the beginning of their journey and established businesses become authorised, we know all the key steps involved in applying for authorisation as well as the potential pitfalls. We will steer you through the process from start to finish using our tried and tested project plan approach.  

It is our experience that, while it is tempting to begin with the application, the right place to start is with your objectives and how best to achieve them.  

The most successful applicants are directed by a detailed project schedule that sets out adequate time and resources to consider the fundamentals of the business plan before building the layers of organisation, governance and processes on top.  

We break the process down into manageable steps so that you have the information you need to make the key decisions about how you will organise your business while we hold the pen in detailing and documenting the material for the application.
