The deadline for investment advisers to submit their Preliminary Renewal Statement payment is quickly approaching. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) must be in receipt of the full payment listed on the Preliminary Renewal Statement by Friday, December 18, 2015. Investment advisers with sufficient funds in their Flex-Funding Account to cover the Preliminary Renewal Statement payment will have funds automatically transferred beginning on Friday, December 11, 2015 to their Renewal Account to cover total renewal fees owed. Automatic transfers will be conducted every day after December 11, 2015 until the WEB CRD/IARD shuts down for year-end processing on Tuesday, December 29, 2015. Investment advisers that choose to mail in their payments are advised to do so now to avoid delays and to ensure funds are received by the deadline.
