APPROVED Webcast: California debt collection license requirement: Overview and analysis

With recent passage of the Debt Collection Licensing Act, California joins a growing list of jurisdictions that require licensure to conduct debt collection activities, affecting thousands, if not tens of thousands, of entities. Debt collectors have until the end of the year to submit their applications, leaving little time to submit their materials and ensure they can continue to operate pending application approval. Who is covered, what the application requires, and how the process works are pressing questions for debt collectors currently operating in California.

Join us for our Checkpoint Webcast where APPROVED COO Tim Lange and Buckley LLP Partner Katy Ryan team up to break down the new act’s requirements, specifically discussing who’s covered by the act, exemptions from licensure, and next steps for industry and regulators.
