This requirement applies whether you are applying for a new firm together with your application for individual registration as an RA, or whether you are an existing RA applying to register a new firm.

This requirement also applies when you are re-registering a previously registered firm where the above documents were not submitted on the previous registration of the firm, or where converting existing firms from non-assurance to assurance.
