Final Notice

On , the Financial Conduct Authority issued a Final Notice to Rarezero Ltd


Dated: 14 November 2019


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

The Authority issued to RL 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 RL’s Part 4A permission.

RL 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 RL’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;

“the Decision Notice” means the Decision Notice issued to RL dated 7 August


“the Return” means the CCR007 return for the period ended 31 September 2018,
which RL was due to submit to the Authority by 12 February 2019;

“RL” means Rarezero Ltd;

“RL’s Part 4A permission” means the permission granted by the Authority to

RL pursuant to Part 4A of the Act;

“the suitability Threshold Condition” means the Threshold Condition set out 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 RL dated 17 July 2019.


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 RL is failing to
satisfy the suitability Threshold Condition, in that the Authority is not satisfied that
RL is a fit and proper person having regard to all the circumstances, including
whether RL managed its business in such a way as to ensure that its affairs were
conducted in a sound and prudent manner.

This is because RL has failed to comply with the regulatory requirement to submit
the Return. RL has not been open and co-operative in all its dealings with the
Authority, in that RL has failed to respond adequately to the Authority's repeated
requests for it to submit the Return, 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 RL’s suitability, lead the
Authority to conclude that RL 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 RL was granted a Part 4A


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


This Final Notice is given to RL in accordance with section 390(1) of the Act.


The Authority must publish such information about the matter to which this Final
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
the Authority, be unfair to RL or prejudicial to the interest of consumers.

The Authority intends to publish such information about the matter to which this
Final Notice relates as it considers appropriate.
