FINRA Fingerprint

Your annual renewal of your FINRA fingerprints as a broker-dealer or transfer agent is an important document that needs to be submitted. We provide fingerprinting and live scanning services to help you verify and submit crucial documents involved in renewing your FINRA registration.

Why is it important to have the FINRA card fingerprint and FINRA Live scan check?

FINRA requires all of its license holders to complete an annual renewal process for their license. It is a necessary process that needs to be completed on time for maintaining the FINRA license. This requires fingerprints from all broker-dealers to be submitted annually to meet the registration requirements.

The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the FBI requirements make it compulsory for all broker-dealers as well as transfer agents to submit their fingerprints every year. All the officials that have been registered with FINRA are required to perform this in order to maintain an active status for their license. If the FINRA fingerprint check is not submitted on time, the registered professional’s status will change to Inactive Status. If the process has not been completed within two years of reaching the Inactive Status, the broker-dealer or transfer agent’s registration with FINRA will be terminated. 

Organizations are responsible for submitting a new broker-dealer or transfer agent’s fingerprints for verification and compliance with FINRA guidelines within 30 days of signing as a member. The list of requirements that are necessary to be presented with the fingerprints are mentioned below. The FINRA fingerprint check and registration process also requires the payment of fees, which has to be made along with all the necessary documents.

One thing to keep in mind is that the fingerprint submission can be done only once. One cannot submit duplicate fingerprints because of some technical error on the organization’s or professional’s end with the documents submission, so they have to be very careful and ensure everything they are sending is accurate. This is why it is necessary for firms to submit all the documents required in a timely fashion when they are sending the broker’s fingerprint for registration and renewal.
