Effective July 1, 2015 the April 2015 version of the New Account Form will be the only version of the New Account Form [NAF] that will be acceptable for new brokerage business, direct business and account updates.
Pershing has updated the NAF to comply with recent Internal Revenue Service mandates. In order for TFS to comply with these IRS mandates we must only accept the 4/15 version of the NAF.
All other versions of the New Account Form received after 7/1/15 will be returned to the representative with the accompanying paperwork and/or checks unprocessed. This is not something TFS desires; however, this new IRS mandate is something we all must comply with.
You can view the updated New Account Form on our website at www.tfsweb.com and the form will be available on LaserApp later this week.
