SIPC and FINRA Streamline Reporting Process for Broker-Dealers
Financial Industry Regulatory Authority press release August 1, 2017 ------- The Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) have announced a services agreement designed to ease reporting burdens and compliance costs for member firms. The new, simplified filing process will also reduce inconsistent or incomplete filing of annual audited financial statements and supplementary reports. Effective Sept. 1, firms that currently file annual reports separately with SIPC and FINRA will file just once, using FINRA’s existing reporting portal. The portal will provide both agencies with the information, enabling the firms to meet the two agencies’ respective reporting requirements with a single filing.
