OFT's Consumer Credit Register

You can search the OFT's register and see details of a company's credit licence

Under the Consumer Credit Act 1974, the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) maintains a register containing particulars of applications for, and holders of, consumer credit licences, as well as details of the variation or renewal of those licences. It holds details of changes to certain particulars notified to the OFT.

The register contains information concerning OFT’s decision to refuse an application or revoke a licence, as well as information relating to appeals made to the Secretary of State against this decision.

It also holds information on Validation Orders in respect of credit agreements made by unlicensed or incorrectly licensed traders.

Copies of current group licences issued by the OFT can be found on our website at [1]
