Recently designed documents include; a full range of updated suitability letters, file checklists (ISAs/PPP switching/drawdown/annuities/ ISA transfers/replacement contracts), DB transfer ‘sanity checklist’, spreadsheet of most common registers which IFA’s use , GP adviser knowledge tests for 2017, Drawdown test, Pensions Transfer Specialist annual test, Esoteric product CPD workbook, various Disclosure Documents/fee agreements/Retail Client agreements.

Remote File Checking

 

 

Just CRS is owned and run by Katherine Horgan and Phil Dibb. Just CRS offer small and medium sized IFA firms a bespoke compliance service at a competitive price. They do not require IFAs to pay a set monthly retainer and work for most IFAs on a fixed project fee. Our most popular service is remote file-checking. The costs are: £75 + VAT per remote client file review (excluding multiple transaction files or higher risk cases such as drawdown, equity release, structured products or PP switching) or £105 + VAT per drawdown / PP switching (up to 3 into 1) / replacement business) / Equity Release remote file check.

 

They are able to offer members of the Later Life Academy a file check priced at £95+VAT instead of the normal charge £105+ VAT.

 

Just CRS Limited has also completed a Section 166 / Skilled Persons Report - as instructed by the FSA, following a rigorous tender process.
