PS15/15: FCA regulated fees and levies

We are publishing rules on our 2015/16 regulatory fees and levies for the FCA, the pensions guidance levy, the Financial Ombudsman Service (ombudsman service) general levy, and MoneyHelper (formerly the Money Advice Service).

Why are we publishing rules on this?

We are funded entirely by the fees and levies recovered from the firms we regulate – we receive no subsidies from other sources. The policy in this paper will enable us to raise the funding for the FCA, the ombudsman (excluding case fees) and MoneyHelper (formerly the Money Advice Service) to meet their statutory objectives in 2015/16.  They will also enable the Pension Wise service (now MoneyHelper's Pension Wise), provided by the Treasury, to be funded in 2015/16. This follows the second part of our consultation on 2015/16 fees.
