Pursuant to 32 M.R.S.A. 16410(1)(F), a "branch office" means any office or a broker-dealer or investment adviser located in this State, other than the principal place of business of the broker-dealer or investment adviser. Only one branch office fee is due if an office is a branch office of both a broker-dealer and an investment adviser affiliated by direct or indirect common control.

  • Firms must file with the Office by submitting a Form BR to the CRD.
  • Fees deducted from firms account via CRD/IARD:
    1. $50 Initial registration
    2. $50 Dual branch registration (BD and IA)
