Firms are required annually to renew their FINRA, other self-regulatory organization (SRO) and state/jurisdiction registrations through the annual Renewal Program, which begins in the fourth quarter of each year. FINRA collects all applicable renewal fees on behalf of itself and participating regulators, which enables firms to submit their total renewal payment to FINRA instead of each regulator. The 2017 Renewal Program concluded on January 20, 2017, the deadline for payment of Final Statements. Details of the 2018 Renewal Program will become available in early November 2017.
FINRA communicates important dates and information with firms via email throughout the Renewal Program period. To ensure your firm receives email messages from FINRA, please visit our Subscriptions Help page and add the finra.org domain to your email application’s safe-sender list.
