Instructions for Amending a Registration

What is an amendment?

An amendment allows you to correct an error or omission on a recent registration or renewal. 

 

Is there a fee to amend a registration statement?

There is no fee for amendments filed within 30 days of the date that the registration was approved.

If you are outside of that 30-day window, there is a fee for filing an amendment.  See the fee schedule for current fees.
