Who are the FSA?
Following the Financial Services and Markets Act in 2000, the FSA took over the regulation of the UK financial services industry. One of the organisation’s main aims is the investigation and eradication of financial misconduct, such as:
- Money Laundering
- Fraud and Business Crime
- Abuse of Financial Markets
What Penalties can the FSA Impose on Businesses?
The FSA has the power to:
- Issue Fines
- Subject Businesses to Financial Penalties
- Issue Warning, Supervisory and Decision Notices
- Withdraw Financial Permissions and Authorisations
In cases of fraud, money laundering or other serious business crimes, the FSA may choose to prosecute through the UK courts, which could result in a custodial sentence or substantial fine for the individuals involved.
