Revolut makes headlines again
Britain’s most valuable fintech company, Revolut, seems to be facing a significant setback as the Bank of England reportedly prepares to reject its application for a banking license.
This follows a review of the company’s internal IT systems, according to Blockworks.
There were found to be insufficient in assuring revenue streams from all kinds of areas of its business, including crypto trading revenues, its accounting firm BDO said last month.
Following a two-year campaign, the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), responsible for licensing, informed the government of its intention to deny Revolut’s application.
The decision also comes amid concerns over Revolut’s balance sheet and a qualified audit opinion on overdue accounts, local media, The Telegraph reported Thursday.
“PRA has instructed Revolut to produce a set of accounts with an audit opinion and simplify its share structure before the license could be granted. The regulator had previously informed the UK government of its plans to issue a notice to Revolut in March,” the online publication mentioned above notes.
