Q: What is REP001 Close Links Report?
A: The Close Links Report in Gabriel is referenced as REP001. This is an annual report that provides the regulator with a full list of all the close links for your firm, as required in SUP 16.5.
By ‘close-link’, the FCA is referring to two or more ‘natural or legal persons’ that are linked by either participation or control. Whilst more information can be found in the FCA sourcebook COND 2.3, for MiFID business, a close link is essentially:
Submission of your Firm’s REP001 must be made within 4 months of your firm's accounting reference date, hence every firm will have their own unique submission deadline detailed within GABRIEL.
Remember though, if there are changes to your close links during the year, these must be notified to the FCA at the time and not just when your REP001 report is due.
