Consultation description

On 2 February 2021, the government announced its intention to regulate interest-free Buy-Now Pay-Later (BNPL) products. The government consulted on policy options to deliver a proportionate approach to regulation in October 2021, followed by a consultation response in June 2022.

The government is now consulting on the proposed draft legislation that will bring BNPL into Financial Conduct Authority regulation. The consultation asks for stakeholders’ views on whether the draft legislation effectively delivers the policy positions set out in the government’s consultation response.
