Regulated firms need to hold a huge amount of paperwork to stay compliant, but with our document library, you can reduce the risk of making a mistake.

Policies, registers and standard compliance templates are all available when we work together. We update our document library all the time, so listed below is just a selection of the type of documents we hold. Contact us about becoming a client, or to request access to whichever files you need.

What clients say

Kate Barnard

B-Compliant seem to have the balance just right for small financial advisers like us from a support and price point. They offer on-site visits or remote help, both of which are extremely helpful. Vicky and her team offer a no-nonsense approach to compliance where what you see is what you get. Perfect!
Debbie Jukes

B-Compliant has delivered everything that we expected, and then some – even at short notice. I feel that they have our best interests at heart, and I have complete confidence in the guidance they provide. They have a flexible approach and a great work ethic.
William Stevenson

What we want from a compliance consultant is threefold: to keep our compliance programme both up to date and (more importantly) effective, to offer solutions and not point out problems, and, yes, to be fairly priced! We get all three from B-Compliant.
David Bashforth

It’s early days in our relationship with Vicky and B-Compliant, but my business partners and I have so far been very impressed with the service and technical knowledge provided. For the first time in a long time, we can see compliance in a more positive light, as a tool to improve our business as a whole.

I approached B-Compliant regarding helping us with our FCA application for an VoP Permissions application, right away I new that we had contacted the right people. Their attitude and positive approach was fantastic. Maria Fox-Leonard was fully informed in helping us prepare our responses back to the FCA and Jeremy Smith helped with his knowledgeable insight into the FCA and how to ask the right questions. We have now successfully received out VOP permissions and I would definitely recommend them to others.

Having worked with B-Compliant Ltd for the past 2 years. Vicky, Simon and Annabel have changed not only our business outlook, but also our attitude toward compliance! Their positive, proactive approach has helped us immeasurably in understanding the complexities of the FCA and regulation. They are always available with answers in plain English and more importantly, solutions! Thank you

We have worked with Jeremy and his team for the last four years. They initially guided us through the FCA application process and since approval have provided us with compliance advice. They set out the to dos very clearly, communicate efficiently and ensure that all deadlines are met. They also make sure that we understand what is required from us as a newly regulated firm and explain everything in detail and in a way that we understand it. I would definitely recommend them.

I met Vicky through a professional organisation and instantly established how knowledgeable and experienced she is in relation to compliance. Given the importance of this function within a regulated firm, Vicky provided me with some initial guidance without commitment or cost. I established that the service proposition could be tailored to exactly what I needed. Without exception staff and management have been extremely supportive and held my hand through a highly legislative process. I feel save in the hands of B-Compliant. Top Class Service. First Class Knowledge. Took all the worry from me and i now feel safe in their care. For a highly personalised service which is truly value for what is spent, you really do need to speak to Vicky and her team. Thank you !
