Selecting your SPS Date
Please find below a few things you would need to keep in mind when selecting your SPS date:
Your SPS date needs to be:
- Set after passing your appropriate qualification/gapfill
- Need to be within three months after your CPD year-end date
If advisers are moving between employers, we would only expect an SPS to be applied for once a firm has signed them
off to undertake their role as an Retail Investment Adviser or if applicable their CF30 status is active.
We will aim to issue SPSs within 10 working days of receipt of an application as long
all the required information and accompanying evidence has been provided. If information or accompanying
evidence has been omitted from the application and we need to request more information from the adviser, the SPS
may take longer to process. Advisers must ensure they meet the SPS requirements before they apply.
Due to the high level of incomplete or inaccurate SPS application, individuals now will be advised by email that
their application is unable to be processed and will be given three days to supply the missing documentation.
Regrettably, if this information is not received by the end of the third day, the application will be returned,
