If you’re looking for a debt advice company in Scotland you can trust, well, you’ve come to the right place.
That’s because us here at Trust Deed Scotland are pleased to announced that we’ve become the first not-for-profit debt advice company in Scotland that’s also regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
Now, this is an important thing, which is why we’re making a bit of a song-and-dance over it. As a social enterprise, we’ve helped more than 15,000 people in Scotland address their financial problems. And, with our new accreditation, we’re looking forward to helping lots more.
As a specialist in various types of debt solutions available to people in Scotland, including trust deeds and sequestration, we’re now uniquely placed to offer people with money problems professional advice and guidance on what their next steps should be.
What does being a not-for-profit mean
We’re now registered as a community interest company, also known as a CIC, which, importantly, is designed to benefit the community, rather than shareholders. Becoming a CIC is something of a trend – approximately 1 in every 200 companies formed in 2015 were a CIC and today there are around 12,000 CICs on the regulatory register.
Crucially, it means you, the customer, is the heart of our organisation. Not our business or our bottom line.
‘Good news for people in debt’
Jon Paul Kelly, director at Trust Deed Scotland, said: “This move puts the company in a unique position to benefit the community by offering free qualified debt advice of the highest calibre. We have always re-invested in the company to ensure the staff are qualified & well trained and the client journey is as good as it can be, so that people in debt can benefit from this.”
“You should also know that we do not charge them any fees for our advice and, because of our not-for-profit status, have your best interests at heart, rather than the shareholders.”
