Application form to use by credit institutions and investment firms from the United Kingdom when applying for a license pursuant to section 33 of the Financial Business Act

The Danish Financial Supervisory Authority encourages applicants to submit the application before 15 October 2020 in order to be sure that the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority is able to assess the application before the end of the transitional period entered into between the EU and the United Kingdom.

The United Kingdom left the EU on 31 January 2020. In this connection, the EU and United Kingdom entered into a transitional agreement, which includes credit institutions and investment firms from the United Kingdom being able to continue to provide investment services and activities to customers in Denmark up to 31 December 2020. When the transition period expires, credit institutions and investment firms from the United Kingdom will no longer have access to provide investment services and activities in Denmark, unless they have a separate license from the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.        

Credit institutions and investment firms from the United Kingdom that intend to provide cross-border investment services and activities in Denmark to Danish eligible counterparties and per se profes-sional clients after the end of the transitional period can apply to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority for a license in accordance with section 33 of the Financial Business Act.

Licenses granted under section 33 of the Financial Business Act to credit institutions and investment firms from the United Kingdom up to the end of the transitional period will be conditional and temporary.

Credit institutions and investment firms from the United Kingdom must use the application form provided by the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority:
