Starting November 1, 2012, the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry (NMLS) will be used to manage Indiana's collection agency licensing. Only collection agencies required to renew their main office location by December 31, 2012, are required to transition through NMLS by that date. Collection agencies whose licenses expire on December 31, 2013, (along with their branches) will transition to the NMLS in 2013. Additionally, any new applications for an Indiana Collection Agency License must be submitted through NMLS after November 1, 2012.
