Supplemental Statement of Income (SSOI)
Regulatory Notice 12-11 announced SEC approval of FINRA Rule 4524 (Supplemental FOCUS Information), which requires each firm, as FINRA shall designate, to file such additional financial or operational schedules or reports as FINRA may deem necessary or appropriate for the protection of investors or in the public interest as a supplement to the FOCUS report, and the adoption of the Supplemental Statement of Income (SSOI), which all FINRA members are required to file, to provide more detailed revenue and expense data than reflected in the FOCUS report. Following the adoption of the SSOI in 2012, FINRA made minor, non-substantive and technical changes to the Form SSOI and related instructions. These changes were approved by the SEC on June 26, 2012.
Firms should ensure that they are using the updated version of Form SSOI and related instructions as they prepare to file the SSOI.
