Expiration and Renewal
Unless renewed, all broker-dealer firm registrations (regardless of when permitted in the calendar year) expire on December 31st of each calendar year. The renewal fee is $100.00. Renewals should be submitted through CRD prior to expiration of registration.
FINRA publishes instructions on CRD renewal during the fall prior to expiration. If you do not receive instructions from FINRA regarding the renewal process during the fall you should contact the FINRA Gateway Call Center at (240) 386-4848 or the Georgia Securities Division at (478) 207-2440.
Please be advised:
Failure to renew by December 31st will result in termination of your registration in Georgia. The Securities Division will NOT send out separate renewal notices to remind registrants of the renewal process.
