· Financial year: All firms must use revenues from their financial year ending in 2017 to calculate their 2017 participation fees. This may require some firms with late financial year ends to estimate revenues when completing their participation fee calculation. 

· Payment of participation fee:

    • For registrant firms with a business location in Canada, payment of participation fees is automatically withdrawn from the firm’s Payments Canada bank account recorded on the National Registration Database (NRD) on the first business day in January.
    • For all other firms, payment of the participation fee must be made by cheque or wire transfer. Attached are cheque and wire transfer payment instructions, along with additional payment details that must be provided with the payment.
