NFA Compliance Rule 2–46 requires CPOs and CTAs to file NFA Form PQR and NFA Form PR, respectively, with NFA on a quarterly basis. The information within these quarterly forms helps NFA determine it’s examination schedule in search of firms that require additional monitoring. However, NFA has experienced a continuing problem with a limited number of firms filing Form PQR and/or Form PR after their respective due dates. Even though NFA staff has increased it’s follow-up on late filings, there continues to be a number of firms that routinely file late.
NFA has proposed an amendment to Compliance Rule 2-46. NFA will now impose a late filing fee for all CTAs and CPOs who file their Quarterly PRs and PQRs after their due dates.
On May 31, 2016 the NFA submitted a proposed amendment that imposes a $200.00 per business day late filing fee on CPOs and CTAs. This fine will become effective September 30, 2016.
