The deadline for investment advisers to submit their Preliminary Renewal Statement payment is quickly approaching. FINRA must be in receipt of the full payment listed on the Preliminary Renewal Statement by December 17, 2018. Investment advisers with sufficient funds in their Flex-Funding Account to cover the Preliminary Renewal Statement payment will have funds automatically transferred beginning on December 17, 2018 to the Renewal Account to cover total renewal fees owed. Automatic transfers will be conducted every day after December 17, 2018 until the WEB CRD/IARD shuts down for year-end processing on December 27, 2018. 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.
