FSPs with a financial year end of 31 December 2015 need to submit their Annual Financial Statements by the submission due date of 30 April 2016. It is therefore very important that FSPs keep in close contact with their auditor or bookkeeper to ensure that their financial statements will be ready for submission prior to the due date.
If the FSP foresees that it has administrative or technical problems and will therefore not be in a position to submit their annual financial statement by 30 April 2016, then a request for an extension needs to be submitted within 15 days prior to the submission date of 30 April. An application for extension can be submitted to the Registrar by either:
- Applying online by logging into your profile via FSB’s FAIS Online System. This is the preferred method.
- Sending a fax to the FSB to the designated fax number applicable to extensions
- Sending an email to designated email address applicable to extensions.
Please note that no extension will be granted if any prior financial statements or compliance reports are outstanding.
