Late Filing Fees
MFDA Staff Notices are intended to assist Members and their Approved Persons in the interpretation, application of and compliance with requirements under MFDA By-laws and Rules. Notices make reference to these requirements and set out MFDA staff's interpretation of how to comply with these requirements. Notices may also include best practices or guidance.
MFDA Rule 3.5.4(b) provides for the levy of fines or assessments for the failure of a Member or its auditor to file any report, form or financial statements required under MFDA Rule 3. As of December 1, 2003, the MFDA imposes fees for late filing of information as prescribed in the attached Schedule A.
Members are reminded that, unless they are specifically subject to earlier time periods due to the imposition of early warning requirements or a term and condition of membership, they are required to file an unaudited Form 1 with the MFDA no later than 20 business days after the month end and an audited Form 1 no later than 90 days after the Member’s fiscal year end. A schedule outlining financial filing deadlines for the calendar year will be provided in a Bulletin issued on an annual basis.
