DFPI reminds CFL licensees of December 31 transition deadline

Licensing DFPI NMLS State Regulators California California Financing Law State Issues

Recently, the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI) reminded companies licensed under the California Financing Law that they must transition onto the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System & Registry (NMLS) by December 31. Licensees not currently on the NMLS must establish an account in the system and transfer information to DFPI through NMLS on or before the deadline. Applicants and transitioning licensees are required to submit IRS and Secretary of State documentation identifying the employer identification number and the state where the company is registered as a business. DFPI further stated that the time for “DFPI to process the licensee’s NMLS transition does not [affect] the licensure status of the licensee, and may occur after the licensee’s December 31, 2021 deadline to submit the licensee’s information to the DFPI through NMLS.”
