eFOCUS - Financial and Operational Combined Uniform Single Reports
The eFOCUS system provides firms with the capability to electronically submit their Financial and Operational Combined Uniform Single (FOCUS) Reports to FINRA. FINRA member firms are required to compose and submit FOCUS reports to FINRA pursuant to SEC Rule 17a-5.
FINRA to Launch Redesigned eFOCUS System in June
Beginning June 24, 2021, quarterly filers will access the updated filing experience via FINRA Gateway, similar to how users do today, by clicking on the "Requests" icon on the left. The monthly filings can be accessed in FINRA Gateway via "Requests", and starting in July, these filings will also have an updated experience. FINRA will continue to support the legacy system until October 2021, which can be accessed through the FINRA Gateway via the Quick Link back to Firm Gateway. More information, including FINRA-hosted webinars, will be announced in the near future.
