      Nem just bringing into this thread instead. I accept that their 'SPVs' may have arranged Cabot Credit Management who then appoint AR's as above. However, part of the SPV exemptions is this:
      The conditions which must be met by the SPV seeking the benefit of the same are that it:

      Does not undertake debt-counselling, debt-collecting or debt adjusting within the meaning of the Regulated Activities Order (RAO)
      Therefore if CF UK have instructed Restons for example, they will be undertaking debt collection within the meaning of the FSMA and the RAO. Therefore they have no exemption on that basis and it must be one of the appointed AR's who is instructing the solicitors as an agent. Where CFUK directly involves itself with the solicitors, that is an attempt to procure the debt and the SPV exemption cannot apply.

      So the question I keep repeating on previous occasions is, find out who is instructing the solicitors - if its CFUK then they're not exempt. If its an AR on behalf of CFUK then the exemption will apply.

      Nevertheless on that thread, CFUK clearly conducted regulated activities prior to the so called exemption so can they pursue something that was done illegally in the first place? I would argue not.

        It's my impression that the AR status of the " trading styles " of Cabot Credit Management had interim permissions prior to their current status.
        I suppose it's probable that " negotiations " took place between Cabot Credit Management and the FCA allowing the companies to trade while changes were made.
        Something we will not be easily able to discover.
