Becoming Directly Authorised

Testimonials

Our best decision in financial services (25 years) was to move to Compliance First.

Assistance with direct authorisation was of great value. In our first 12 months, we had two service calls and both were more productive than the old style network meetings. We received fantastic support on our first Gabriel report, so much so that we were able to complete the second on our own.

During any calls to Compliance First, we are left with the impression that they are genuinely there to help. Having traded for 12 months directly authorised, we have saved in excess of £8,000 when compared to the costs of a network, going LTD also saved in excess of £5,000. What’s not to like?
