This page provides information and resources for crowdfunding intermediaries that, pursuant to Title III of the JOBS Act, the SEC’s Regulation Crowdfunding and FINRA’s rules for funding portals, register with the SEC as funding portals and become funding portal members of FINRA.

Update a Funding Portal's Registration

If your firm has a change of ownership or control as set forth in Funding Portal Rule 110(a)(4),  you must notify FINRA of those changes by filing a continuing membership application for funding portals, known as Form FP-CMA, located in the Funding Portal Gateway.

Withdraw a Funding Portal's Registration

To withdraw your funding portal's registration with FINRA, you must update your Form Funding Portal through the SEC's EDGAR system. On your Form Funding Portal, check the box that indicates this is “a withdrawal of the funding portal’s registration with the SEC.” Withdrawing your registration with the SEC will trigger a request of withdrawal of your firm’s registration with FINRA.

Pay a Funding Portal's Annual Gross Income Assessment

Every year, funding portals must complete the Form FP-Statement of Revenue and pay a gross income assessment.
