1- This is about raising money for a start-up or a mid cap. We will submit a business plan and the investor will sign a share agreement to get shares against money invested in the company

1 It depends on whether you are approaching lenders as to whether u need a CCL.
1- It is about raising equity fund. i don't know what is a ccl?
CCL is a consumer credit licence which I referred to in the first post.
You don’t need a consumer credit licence to put the proposal together and the business plan and the cash flow forecast and prepare the applications.
You do need a consumer credit licence if you intend to submit them on behalf of the company and the company is not making the application itself or in on behalf of individuals, if the individuals are not submitting the application themselves
There is no application in the sense that the investor will submit his letter of intent or purchase sale agreement directly.
directly to who? The lender? What type of lender is it? Who found the lender?
I do need full background please.
There is no lender. An individual or corporate entity will invest money.
Thank you. In these circumstances, I don’t think you do need a consumer credit licence and there is no harm in you charging a fee for what you are doing.
Does that answer the question?
