(1) Obligation and Party Responsible for Reporting Cancelled Trades
With the exception of trades cancelled by NASD staff in accordance with Rule 11890, members shall report to the System the cancellation of any trade previously submitted to the System.

Transactions must be submitted to the System by 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time (or the end of the System reporting session that is in effect at that time).
(1) Away From the Market Sales
Reports of transactions where the buyer and seller have agreed to trade at a price substantially unrelated to the current market for the security, and consideration is given, shall include a modifier of .RA to designate the transaction as submitted for purposes of the regulatory transaction fee under Section 3 of Schedule A to the NASD By-Laws. Transactions may be entered as clearing or non-clearing.
(2) Exercises of OTC Options
Reports of transactions effected pursuant to the exercise of an OTC option shall include a modifier of .RX to designate the transaction as submitted for purposes of the regulatory transaction fee under Section 3 of Schedule A to the NASD By-Laws.

(h) Inclusion of Transaction Fees in Clearing Reports Submitted to the NASD/Nasdaq Trade Reporting Facility
NASD members may agree in advance to transfer a transaction fee charged by one member to another member on a transaction in NMS stocks, as defined in Rule 600(b)(47) of Regulation NMS under the Act, effected otherwise than on an exchange through the submission of a clearing report to the NASD/Nasdaq Trade Reporting Facility. Such report, inclusive of the transaction fee, will be submitted to the National Securities Clearing Corporation for processing. To facilitate the transfer of the transaction fee, the report submitted to the NASD/Nasdaq Trade Reporting Facility shall provide, in addition to all other information required to be submitted by any other rule, a total per share or contract price amount, inclusive of the transaction fee. Prior to submitting any such report, both members and their respective clearing firms, as applicable, must have executed an agreement, as specified by NASD, permitting the facilitation of the transfer of the transaction fee through the NASD/Nasdaq Trade Reporting Facility, as well as any other applicable agreement, such as a give up agreement pursuant to Rule 4632(h), and submitted the executed agreement(s) to the NASD/Nasdaq Trade Reporting Facility. Such agreement(s) are considered member records for purposes of NASD Rule 3110(a) and must be made and preserved by both members in conformity with applicable NASD rules. Nothing in this paragraph shall relieve a member from its obligations under NASD rules and the federal securities laws, including but not limited to, NASD Rule 2230 and SEC Rule 10b-10.
Example:

SELL 100 shares to another member at 10 plus a transaction fee of .01 per share;

REPORT 100 shares at 10 (the per share price exclusive of the transaction fee) to the NASD/Nasdaq Trade Reporting Facility for publication and also report 10.01 (the per share price inclusive of the transaction fee) for purposes of clearance and settlement through the National Securities Clearing Corporation.
(i) Members shall not submit to the System any report (including but not limited to reports of step-outs and reversals) associated with a previously executed trade that was not reported to the System, unless such report is submitted, pursuant to Rule 4632(d), to reflect the offsetting riskless portion of a riskless principal transaction.
