On 22 July 2020 we published an updated version of PS20/07 (please follow the link above) which makes amendments to the final financial penalty rebates for 2020/21 as explained in the notes to table 2.1 in Chapter 2 and table 4.1 in Chapter 4.

Who this applies to

All fee payers will be affected by this Policy Statement. This PS is not directly relevant to retail financial services consumers or consumer groups, although fees are indirectly met by financial services consumers.

Next steps

Firms can use our online fees calculator to calculate their individual fees based on the final rates in this PS. This includes FCA periodic fees and the Financial Ombudsman Service, Money and Pensions Advice Service, Devolved Authorities and illegal money lending levy final rates. The fees calculator will also cover PRA fees and FSCS levies.

We will invoice fee-payers from July 2020 onwards for their 2020/21 periodic fees and levies.
