Business compliance: Activity specific regulation

Some social businesses will carry out activities that are specifically regulated or require pre-approval and licences. Examples include:

  • Financial services regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority
  • Social care services regulated by Care Inspectorate Wales
  • Activities requiring specific licences, for example, events, selling alcohol, working with animals etc.

You should carry out sufficient research to ensure you comply with any specific requirements relating to the activities of your business.
