HCS HB 587, 2015 (Amended Section - as Truly Agreed)
367.140. 1. Every lender shall, at the time of filing
application for certificate of registration as provided in section
367.120 hereof, pay the sum of [three] five
hundred dollars as an annual registration fee for the period
ending the thirtieth day of June next following the date of payment
and in full payment of all expenses for investigations, examinations
and for the administration of sections 367.100 to 367.200, except
as provided in section 367.160, and thereafter a like fee shall
be paid on or before June thirtieth of each year; provided, that
if a lender is supervised by the commissioner of finance under
any other law, the charges for examination and supervision required
to be paid under said law shall be in lieu of the annual fee
for registration and examination required under this section.
The fee shall be made payable to the director of revenue. If
the initial registration fee for any certificate of registration
is for a period of less than twelve months, the registration
fee shall be prorated according to the number of months that
said period shall run. The director may establish a biennial
licensing arrangement but in no case shall the fees be payable
for more than one year at a time.
2. Upon receipt of such fee and application for registration, and provided the bond, if required by the director, has been filed, the director shall issue to the lender a certificate containing the lender's name and address and reciting that such lender is duly and properly registered to conduct the supervised business. The lender shall keep this certificate of registration posted in a conspicuous place at the place of business recited in the registration certificate. Where the lender engages in the supervised business at or from more than one office or place of business, such lender shall obtain a separate certificate of registration for each such office or place of business.
3. Certificates of registration shall not be assignable or transferable except that the lender named in any such certificate may obtain a change of address of the place of business therein set forth. Each certificate of registration shall remain in full force and effect until surrendered, revoked, or suspended as herein provided.
