Final Notice

On , the Financial Conduct Authority issued a Final Notice to Corry Car Sales


Dated: 9 May 2017


For the reasons set out in this Final Notice, the Authority hereby takes the
following action against CCS.

The Authority issued to CCS the Decision Notice which notified it that for the
reasons given below and pursuant to section 55J of the Act, the Authority had
decided to cancel CCS’s Part 4A permission.

CCS has not referred the matter to the Tribunal within 28 days of the date on
which the Decision Notice was issued to it.

Accordingly, the Authority has today cancelled CCS’s Part 4A permission.


The definitions below are used in this Final Notice:

“the Act” means the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000;

“the Authority” means the Financial Conduct Authority;

“CCS” means Corry Car Sales;

“CCS’s Part 4A permission” means the permission granted by the Authority to
CCS pursuant to Part 4A of the Act;

“the Decision Notice” means the Decision Notice issued to CCS dated 21 March

“the Overdue Balance” means the amount owed by CCS to the Authority totalling
£94.58, comprising an invoice in respect of periodic fees and levies dated 8
October 2015, which was due for payment by 7 November 2015;

“the Principles” means the Authority’s Principles for Businesses;

“the Return” means the CCR007 (key data) return for the period ended 31 March
2016, which CCS was due to submit to the Authority by 13 May 2016;

“the suitability Threshold Condition” means the threshold condition stated in
Paragraph 2E of Schedule 6 to the Act;

“the Threshold Conditions” means the threshold conditions set out in Schedule 6

to the Act;

“the Tribunal” means the Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery Chamber); and

“the Warning Notice” means the Warning Notice issued to CCS dated 21 February



On the basis of the facts and matters and conclusions described in the Warning
Notice and in the Decision Notice, it appears to the Authority that CCS is failing to
satisfy the suitability Threshold Condition, in that the Authority is not satisfied
that CCS is a fit and proper person having regard to all the circumstances,
including whether CCS managed its business in such a way as to ensure that its
affairs were conducted in a sound and prudent manner.

This is because CCS has failed to comply with the regulatory requirements to
submit the Return and pay the Overdue Balance. CCS has not been open and co-
operative in all its dealings with the Authority, in that it has failed to respond
adequately to the Authority's repeated requests for it to submit the Return and
pay the Overdue Balance, and has thereby failed to comply with Principle 11 of
the Authority's Principles for Businesses and to satisfy the Authority that it is
ready, willing and organised to comply with the requirements and standards
under the regulatory system.

These failures, which are significant in the context of CCS’s suitability, lead the
Authority to conclude that CCS has failed to manage its business in such a way as
to ensure that its affairs are conducted in a sound and prudent manner, that it is
not a fit and proper person, and that it is therefore failing to satisfy the Threshold

Conditions in relation to the regulated activities for which CCS has had a


The decision which gave rise to the obligation to give this Final Notice was made
by the Regulatory Decisions Committee.

Notice relates as the Authority considers appropriate. The information may be
published in such manner as the Authority considers appropriate. However, the
Authority may not publish information if such publication would, in the opinion of

Final Notice relates as it considers appropriate.
