Pricing FAQ

(Fictional Awkward Questions)

Premium access is priced at the modest sum of £300 + VAT a year, or £25 + VAT a month. As a reminder included in that cost, you get all this:

  • A proven deep-dive screening process to create bespoke due diligence reports setting out the rationale behind your chosen platforms, with a built-in audit trail to boot.
  • The ability to run one-off interactive pricing and features comparisons between platforms, based on specific must-haves or great-to-haves… all done in seconds.
  • Ad hoc research to help you keep up with the key issues of the day.
  • Staying informed about what’s happening in platforms and advice through our market insight, reports, briefings, articles and other useful content, all in one place.
  • New functionality added all the time, based on user feedback.

We thought about it, but we believe £300 a year is amazingly good value for what you get. Whether you prefer to receive one £300 invoice for the year, or pay £25 month by month, it’s all the same to us. Bear in mind also that as we introduce new content and functionality on a regular basis, we don’t intend to increase the subscription amount.

When you sign up for the seven-day free trial, we will request your card details but don’t worry – we’ll only take payment when the seven days are up. At any time beforehand, you can cancel your subscription with nothing to pay, no hard feelings.

If you choose to start the premium service without the trial, or to go ahead after the trial, payment will be taken from your card as above: £300 + VAT a year, or £25 + VAT a month.

We’ve chosen Stripe for our payments system, which keeps payments safe via comprehensive security. You can find out more about the security steps they take here.

Yes, you can, but only for annual subscriptions (£300 + VAT). Providing monthly £25 + VAT invoices is a faff for all concerned, as we’re sure you’ll agree. Email us at support@langcatfinancial.com and we’ll provide an annual invoice for payment.

For most small to medium-sized firms, one licence should be fine. You can share the single log in details across the firm, but only one user can be logged in at any one time. We haven’t built firm-level licences as yet for multiple users at the same time, but we will if subscribers tell us they want it.

Not at all. As we build out Analyser in the future (exciting new developments coming very soon on this front, so watch this space), it’ll all be within your existing subscription. There are one or two things some firms have asked for – mainly fund feeds – which would cost a fortune to implement. So we might ask subscribers in future if they’d be happy to pay a bit more to get access to that kind of thing, but otherwise the price is the price.

Yes, we provide receipted VAT invoices, emailed to all paying subscribers. You can ask us for a copy of an invoice at any time using the ‘Get in touch’ button.

No, we’re not in that game. We provide great value for the premium service we provide. As mentioned, we also don’t increase the subscription price for functionality updates and useful content.

In theory you could do that. But you’d lose all the reports you’ve built up, plus be locked out of the useful functionality that’s helping other advisers up and down the country every day.

As we point out to people during sign-up, Analyser is only available to advice professionals. We know who qualify to subscribe on this basis. However, if you work for a platform provider, fund manager, industry body or big consultancy firm please contact our support team and we’ll happily provide you with a demo of what’s available to you.

We believe an Analyser subscription packs in a whole lot of value for you and your firm. But if you’ve decided it’s not for you, that’s fair enough. Log in to Analyser, go to ‘account’, then ‘account settings’, scroll to the bottom and select ‘cancel subscription’.

And if you change your mind, you know where we are.
