Operating in the UK Post-Brexit - A Guide for EEA Firms

December 14, 2020 by Andrew Welch, Bobby Johal


By 1 January 2021, in excess of 1,500 global firms will need to adapt their business models and regulatory registration arrangements to continue operating within the UK – regardless of the outcome of final Brexit negotiations. 

There are a range of short, and long-term options available to firms, from the various temporary permissions or financial services contract regimes through to full FCA authorisation . Many firms are still unsure as to the right solution for their immediate needs, and even less certain for medium to longer term strategic and tactical planning.   

Tune into our on demand webcast recording  to hear Bobby Johal and Andy Welch, Managing Directors at ACA Compliance Group, discuss the UK transitional regimes, the FCA’s expectations of international firms operating in the UK and the FCA authorisation process. Topics include:

  • The UK Transitional Provisions Regime – what it means and the next steps;  
  • Being authorised in the UK – the regulatory environment; and 
  • The application process.
