Renewing a Firm Registration (Certificate of Authority)

The registration renewal period for firms runs from July 1 through June 30 each year.

Renewal Forms will NOT be delivered via U.S. 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.

Completed forms and payment must be postmarked by June 30. If 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.
