Authorisations

Are you a financial services start up or scale up looking for a regulatory licence?

As a financial services company who wants to carry on regulated activities, you will need the approval of the Central Bank of Ireland. If you want to become a bank (a credit institution), you will have to apply for a banking licence with the European Banking Authority (EBA).

As experts in the industry who have successfully helped companies achieve authorisation with the Central Bank of Ireland, and the FCA, we welcome you to start a conversation with our experts to see how we can help you with this essential part of your set up or scale up while you get on with the important task of building and growing your business.

Authorised payment institutions and e money institutions

Obtaining Irish authorisation requires you to demonstrate to the Central Bank of Ireland that your business model is one that meets the regulator’s expectations, that the owners and directors are fit and proper, and that there are robust systems and controls in place. Authorisation can only be obtained if all of these requirements are met.
