FINRA Renewal Program

Firms are required annually to renew their FINRA, other self-regulatory organization (SRO) and state/jurisdiction registrations through the FINRA Renewal Process, which begins in the fourth quarter of each year. FINRA collects all applicable registration renewal fees on behalf of itself and participating regulators, which enables firms to submit their total renewal payment to FINRA instead of each regulator.

Your firm must pay all applicable registration renewal fees assessed on its Preliminary Renewal Statement for the firm, branch offices and associated individuals to ensure continued eligibility to do business in the coming year.

Firms must use their FINRA Renewal Accounts to pay their annual renewal fees. FINRA notifies firms when the Renewal Program begins and firm Renewal Statements are available in Web CRD/IARD. For the 2015 renewal season Preliminary Renewal Statements will be available beginning November 10, 2014.
