The regulation of consumer credit will transfer from the OFT to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) on 1 April 2014. This is part of the Government's programme of regulatory changes for financial services.
If you apply to the OFT for a Consumer Credit Licence on or after 21 February, please be aware that, due to the limited time remaining before the transfer of responsibility to the FCA, it is very likely that we will not be able to process your application to completion. It will be passed to the FCA to take forward.
For general enquiries and guidance on the work of OFT, please phone us on 08457 22 44 99 or email email@example.com.
Please note the OFT is unable to provide tailored advice to individuals. To find out your rights under the Consumer Credit Act or other legislation you should obtain independent advice.
