We are publishing the 2017/18 periodic regulatory fees and levies for the:

  • Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
  • Financial Ombudsman Service general levy
  • MoneyHelper (formerly the Money Advice Service)
  • pensions guidance levies
  • Illegal money lending levy

We also publish our feedback on the responses received to the consultation on the draft fees and levies rules in CP17/12 (PDF). 

Who this applies to

All fee-payers will be affected by this Policy Statement. It does not contain material directly relevant to retail financial services consumers or consumers groups, although, indirectly, fees are met by financial services consumers.

Next steps

Our fee calculator is available for firms to calculate their individual fees based on the final rates. This includes FCA periodic fees, the Financial Ombudsman Service general levies, MoneyHelper (formerly the Money Advice Service) levies, pensions guidance levies and Illegal Money Lending levy.

We will invoice fee-payers from July 2017 onwards for their 2017/18 periodic fees and levies.

Further consultation on 2017/18 fees and levies

In Chapter 9 we consult on formalising the MoneyHelper (formerly the Money Advice Service) debt advice concession for smaller Credit Unions into the FEES Manual. We are also making further changes in order to improve the clarity of our FEES 7 rules.

This consultation has now closed.
