For larger firms with higher filing volume, FINRA offers the Web Electronic Filing Transfer (EFT) Program, which can significantly streamline registration processing by allowing firms to send batch transmissions to Web CRD®/IARD™. Web EFT™ reduces the time and effort needed to manually file Forms U4, U5, BR and NRF.

Web EFT is a secure file transfer application that can eliminate the need for firms to manually submit online form filings to Web CRD/IARD. It also allows firms to receive daily and weekly downloads, such as accounting transactions and exam results, directly from Web CRD/IARD, which can then be easily uploaded by firms to their internal systems.
