"I would recommend that anyone contemplating the journey towards direct authorisation enlists the assistance of SimplyBiz. They are veterans of the direct authorisation application process and have succeeded thousands of times at taking firms through to successful authorisation. SimplyBiz made the whole application process less stressful and easier to manage, particularly when it came to corresponding with the Regulator.

All of the staff at SimplyBiz that I have had the pleasure of coming into contact with appear to be very highly trained and good at what they do. The overall impression is that they have the right people, with the right skills, in the right job, that enables them to get the right result. It gives me great pleasure to be associated with such a forward looking, pioneering and progressive organization.”
