We understand that it is important for firms to understand the cost of regulation and the contributions that they need to budget for each year. A firm will need to budget for the annual assessment of their authorisation, either through the initial application or annual return, their ongoing supervision (which is included in this assessment fee) and for their contribution to our client compensation arrangements.

If a firm makes changes to its authorisation during the year, then there may be an additional fee.

The links to the left set out the fees that your entity will pay for:

  • an application fee – for authorisation to be considered
  • compensation fund fee – a contribution to the CILEx Regulation Compensation Arrangements
  • the annual practice fee; and
  • application amendment fee – any subsequent amendments to an authorisation

The annual fees will be calculated automatically based on the information you submit within your initial application or in your annual return.
