Details

This is an illustrative draft of a proposed statutory instrument (SI) that upon laying and subject to being approved by Parliament would allow the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) to charge case fees to claims management companies (CMCs) and other relevant professional representatives bringing cases to the FOS on behalf of complainants.

The FOS is responsible for deciding its approach to charging fees within the scope set by government. The FOS is consulting on its approach to fee charging in its Plans and Budget 2024-25 and this illustrative SI is being published to support that consultation. The government intends to finalise draft regulations ahead of introducing them in Parliament following the FOS Plans and Budget 2024-2025 consultation closing.

Further information about both the illustrative SI and how to respond to the FOS Plans and Budget 2024-25 consultation can be found in the policy note.
