Who Must File an Annual Report?
ALL NEW JERSEY BANKING DIVISION LICENSEES who held an active license, listed under the General Instructions, for any period of time from January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016 are required to file an annual report. You are required to fill out an annual report even if you did ZERO business.
If you were actively licensed on December 31, 2016 in the State of New Jersey, your annual report must reflect the total activity of your business as of the end of 2016.
If you surrendered your license during 2016 (closed your business, merged with another company, etc...), your annual report must reflect the total activity of your business as of the date of surrender. For example, if you closed your business on March 3, 2016, you would report the activity of your business in New Jersey up to this date.
Your annual report should only reflect the amount of business done in New Jersey through your main office and all New Jersey branch offices during 2016 unless otherwise directed to do so in the detailed help available for each page.
