Please keep in mind that annual registration fees are due on December 31, 2015, as payment for the following year. On December 1, 2015, the National Registration Database (NRD) generates a Preliminary Annual Fee Summary, which indicates the OSC participation fee (based on the information provided in Form 13-502F4 Capital Markets Participation Fee Calculation) and the fees for the remaining applicable jurisdictions where the firm and its individuals are registered, as well as the NRD system fees. The Preliminary Annual Fee Summary will show an estimate of fees that will be withdrawn from the firm’s NRD-linked bank account on December 31, 2015, if the number of individuals with the registrant firm remains the same. If you have any individuals who are leaving the firm or are surrendering their registrations, you may exclude them from the fee calculation by using the Annual Fee Exclusion submission available on NRD.
