Tue, 09/02/2014 - 8:00am to Wed, 12/31/2014 - 12:00am

The Department of Banking and Finance will begin using the Nationwide Multistate Licensing System (NMLS)* on September 2, 2014, to manage its Money Service Business (MSB) licensees.

Existing MSB licensees will renew their Georgia license by creating and submitting a record in NMLS for the company, the owners of the company and all (check casher) branch locations to transition their existing Georgia license onto NMLS.  All transition requests should be made between September 2 and December 1 through NMLS to avoid a late fee.  Transition requests made between December 2 and December 31 will be assessed a 0 late fee in addition to your annual license fee. Any licensee that fails to request transition through the NMLS by December 31 will expire.

Information will be posted on the NMLS Georgia State Licensing Requirements page on September 2nd.
