Registration of changes which happened in a financial institution

If there are some changes in information which was submitted to the Commission for putting into the Register of FI then it must report about it to the Commission within 15 days.

If a director or a head account was replaced and a new person doesn’t have a qualification certificate, then he or she must pass qualification courses and pass an exam within 3 months.

Also you have to keep in mind that buying of already register financial institution causes submitting of three different lists of documents to the Commission.

The first one is related to reissue of the Certificate about registration of a financial institution (according to its address’s change or a name’s change) and it consisted of: a registration card of a financial institution, original of the Certificate about registration of a financial institution, an extract from the Unified State Register.

The second list of documents is related to reporting to the Commission about other changes (for example, replacement of a director who responsible for a financial monitoring, current account’s replacement etc.) and it consisted of: a registration card, report about changes and also other certificates, orders and documents which conform these changes.

And, finally, the third list of documents which is submitted for getting the Approving on buying a significant part of a financial institution. This Approving is drafted by Commission’s order and issues in a form of a regulatory document. We need to admit that the main document is the one which confirms for which money sources were bought a financial institution. It can be a certificate about salary of a sole trader, an extract of a bank account etc.

In a case of opening new chapters you must report about it to the Commission. Information about new chapters is putted into the Register of financial institutions.
