Timeframe to Obtain an EMI License in the UK


It takes anywhere from six to twelve months to acquire an EMI license in the UK (provided all documentation is complete). In cases where the FCA demands additional details and documents, the licensing process is extended. However, to avoid any possible delays, we always recommend our clients share all supporting documents with us. This helps us in filing the application in time and receiving approval without any hurdles.

In addition to the services mentioned, we will also assist you with:

  • Preparation of all types of documents for EMI license filing.
  • Opening a safeguarding account – this is one of essential requirements of obtaining an EMI license in the UK.
  • Correspondence with FCA on your behalf.
  • Replying to all questions raised by FCA.
