Firm Renewal

Renewing A Firm Registration (Certificate of Authority)

The firm registration renewal period of July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018 will open on May 1, 2017.

If you applied for an initial firm Certificate of Authority after April 1 and prior to June 30, 2017, you will still need to complete a renewal form in order for your registration to remain active for the July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018 period.

Renewal Forms will not be delivered via mail. Please download the form that corresponds with your registration type, complete it fully, and mail it along with your check (we are unable to accept credit card payments at this time) to LSBAE, 9625 Fenway Avenue, Suite B, Baton Rouge, LA 70809. Your completed form and payment must be postmarked by June 30. If your renewal application is not postmarked on or before June 30th, a delinquent fee equal to the renewal fee of $75 (in-state) or $150 (out-of-state) will be assessed in addition to the regular renewal fee for a total of $150 (in-state) or $300 (out-of-state) respectively. Renewal forms that are delinquent more than 90 days may also be subject to fines in addition to the delinquent fees.

A new rule and fee structure will go into effect for all initial and renewal firm registration applications for the period July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018. Effective July 1, the new fees will be $75 for in-state and $150 for out-of-state firms. This means that if you are renewing for this time period PRIOR to July 1, you will need to pay the new fees. For more information on this, please see April, 2017 Special Bulletin.
