TCF Compliance Platform
The platform is paperless and by electronically serving documents, created in simple clear English we give a professional standard format to everything a customer receives.
All TCF documentation which requires a signature can be signed at the dealership electronically, or if the transaction is remote, the system will administer an ‘E-Signature document’ for the customer to sign via their own device or computer.
Bespoke to your company the system gives confidence and consistent presentation to your customers, which Sales Advisors are comfortable using, following a compliant FCA process.
We offer a "niche" software service which is reviewed regularly in-line with the FCA guidelines and regulation and developed to maintain your compliance.
All TCF Paperwork is reviewed constantly, to assess changing legislation and FCA rules.
TCF Documentation is prepared to offer simple and logical explanations to clients, leading to better client outcomes and, internally simple to navigate for staff.
All TCF processes have your sales process at heart. We integrate and train our TCF Processes to fit into existing sales processes and, having experience of sales and management processes – we can ensure we ‘talk your language’.
Additional peace of mind.
Timed serving and recording of GAP prescribed information ensuring the customers 4 day deferred period has commenced and information provided.
Adequate proof of a robust process with GAP and an opt-in waiver allowing for maximum customer security, having made an informed decision.
Timeline Proof of ‘Informed Decision’.
TCF Duty of Care document will prove an ‘informed decision’ has been made over a period of time, allowing for adequate consideration of products. Crucially the FCA do not want a ‘tick box’ exercise upon handover and advise a process where there is proof of a timescale for decision. This improves opportunities for closing at vehicle handover in addition to tightening up customer experience in line with Treating Customer Fairly principles.
Full preparation and passionate presentation of Personal Statement of Demands & Needs.
This is to professionally establish eligibility of insurance products and create customer desire and belief at the point of sale. Completed at the appropriate time, this allows the customer to make an informed decision considering the facts on the appropriate products. Documentation is time-stamped and this consideration phase of the process is in-line with FCA guidelines. The correct implementation of the Demands & Needs process will ensure assumptive selling does not occur.

Sales Leagues lead to awareness and drive a consistent and compliant set of results – in ‘real time’.
Additional peace of mind.
Any company that sells or offers insurance products must be authorised by the Financial Conducts Authority (FCA). Every business is responsible for ensuring individuals are and remain proficient in the work that they do.
Our FCA regulatory course covers all of the areas affected by the FCA legislation as it applies to the automotive retail sector.
Our Automotive Systems learning management system provides maximum peace of mind. We review the testing regularly, in line with insurance products and the latest FCA guidelines. The tests are set at an agreed frequency, with a lock-out function to ensure employees are ALWAYS trained. Management reporting, can be set to inform when employees have 30-days or less to perform a TCF test leading to greater awareness and peace of mind.
