No changes will be made after reviewing the rules that extend access to the Financial Ombudsman Service for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). SMEs with a turnover of less than £6.5 million and fewer than 50 employees, or a balance sheet total of less than £5 million, can access the service.

“We have decided that this level of coverage remains appropriate and that it would not be proportionate to extend access to SMEs larger than the current criteria,” the Financial Conduct Authority commented.
