About the consultation
The purpose of this consultation is to gather views on the proposal for the funding scheme for the Office of the Financial Services Ombudsman (OFSO).
The proposal and industry feedback will then be presented to the OFSO for its consideration in prescribing the first fee and levy schemes.
Jersey and Guernsey are at different stages in their legislative processes, so have different requirements from the consultation. Therefore, the main consultation document sets out the proposed funding scheme and has separate appendices for Guernsey and Jersey.
The paper sets out the proposed funding scheme and principles, including:
- who will pay the case-fees and levies
- how the case-fees and levies will be calculated and applied
- how exemptions would apply
- illustrations of potential fees and levies
What we want to know
We would like to know the views of financial services providers on the funding proposals and specific questions as relevant for each jurisdiction.
Readers in each jurisdiction should read the consultation document and the relevant appendix. Views on the proposals and specific responses to the questions posed are welcomed.
