Here is what some of our customers had to say

  • Consumer Credit Compliance helped us getting through a nerve wrecking period of applying for full FCA authorization in the High Cost Short Term Credit space (a.k.a. payday loans). Our business depends on our FCA license and we could not be able to work without it. Our industry is also very strictly regulated and every aspect of the application had to be thoroughly examined. We had to make sure we are 100% compliant in everything we do including our websites, our marketing standards and practices, our regulatory business plan, business continuity policies, local approved persons and more. Consumer credit compliance were always professional and ready to help and this is what matters most! We also intend to use their ongoing support program for ongoing compliance
