2.9.1

In considering requests for the withdrawal of a Financial Services Permission, a firm will need to satisfy us that it has made appropriate arrangements with respect to its existing customers, including the receipt of any customers' consent where required and, in particular:

(a) whether there may be a long period in which the business will be run-off or transferred;
(b) whether deposits must be returned to customers;
(c) whether money and other assets belonging to customers must be returned to them; and
(d) whether there is any other matter which we would reasonably expect to be resolved before granting a request for the withdrawal of a Financial Services Permission.
