Trust or Company Service Providers (TCSPS): What does "Arranging" mean?

‘Arranging’ in this context means the act of putting in order, providing for another person to act as a company director, company secretary, partner, nominee shareholder or trustee.

An example of arranging would be providing clients with a company director, which involves finding the person, selecting them without any further assessment by, or consultation with the client, and completing some or all of the formalities associated with their appointment to that position.

Examples of activities that are not considered to be arranging can be found in the section on businesses that are not TCSPs. See MLR2R7400.
