The cost for a full authorisation is discounted from £1000 to £600 + VAT for AOBP members, with limited permissions application services also available again at a discounted rate where applicable.
The post authorisation, ongoing compliance service will also be available to AOBP broker members at £40 + VAT per month (usually £60).
David Golder, managing director at the Consumer Credit Centre, part of the larger SimplyBiz Group, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Association of Bridging Professionals and look forward to providing the membership with compliance support and guidance specifically in the area of Consumer Credit regulation. This is of particular relevance now we are in the run up to the introduction of the Mortgage Credit Directive in March of next year.
“We have already established solid working relationships with AOBP’s Executive Committee members, who, like ourselves, are keen to ensure that members are in the best possible position to thrive in the new regulated environment.”
AOBP Chairman Rob Jupp and Brightstar CEO, who used SimplyBiz’s Consumer Credit Centre for Brightstar’s own application, said: “Brightstar recognises the importance of getting it right when it comes to regulation and so were keen to partner with SimplyBiz which is a long-established business with a wealth of experience and expertise.”
