Financial Conduct Authority guidance

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is the regulator for credit and other financial matters, and its website contains a wide range of information for businesses. All businesses carrying out consumer credit activities must be authorised by the FCA.

The FCA is responsible to HM Treasury but is funded by the firms it regulates rather than the Government.
