Providing documents to the CMA

Details

If you decide to notify your merger, you should contact the Competition and Markets Authority by firstly completing the merger case team allocation request form.

The CMA will then discuss the information that should be provided in the merger notice form with you. You should then notify CMA by either:

  • using the attached notice template or
  • providing a submission in a written format, accompanied by an annotated version of the notice template noting where in the submission the questions have been addressed.

Any merger which qualifies for reference for a phase 2 investigation is subject to a fee irrespective of whether a reference is made. Merger fees are payable to the CMA. Further information is available from How to notify the CMA of a merger.
