Questions & Answers - Reporting Annex IV transparency information to the FCA - Updated 06 October 2014

The FCA requires firms to submit returns using v1.1 of the ESMA reporting documents.

Submitting your data

Gabriel reporting is expected to go live in October 2014.

Until then firms firms may submit reports in either the XML v1.1 format or using the ESMA consolidated template (2013/1359).

After this time firms must report to the FCA via Gabriel using XML v1.1. The FCA will not be able to accept v1.2. We will keep this under review and will update from v1.1 at a future date; this is not likely to happen until after ESMA is able to accept transparency reporting from competent authorities. 

Please submit your completed returns, using the XML v1.1 reporting template, to: firm.queries@fca.org.uk

The subject line of the email should contain your FRN (or firm name for new applications) followed by 'AIFMD Reporting'. We will send an acknowledgement email to confirm receipt.

Please keep checking this page regularly, we will be providing information on how to access Gabriel and information on how FCA firm reference numbers (FRN)  and the FCA product reference numbers (PRN) will be provided to firms.
