     (3)  Any material changes to any of the information submitted by the licensee on its original application that have not previously been reported to the commissioner on any other report required to be filed under this chapter;

     (4)  For the most recent quarter for which data is available prior to the date of filing the annual report, but in no event more than one hundred twenty days prior to the renewal date, a list of the licensee’s permissible investments, including the total market value of each type of permissible investment, and the total dollar amount of all outstanding payment obligations;

     A license may be renewed by filing a renewal statement on a form prescribed by NMLS or by the commissioner and paying a renewal fee at least four weeks prior to the renewal date for licensure for the following year.

     (c)  A licensee that has not filed an annual report that has been deemed complete by the commissioner or paid its annual license fee by the renewal filing deadline, and has not been granted an extension of time to do so by the commissioner, shall have its license suspended on the renewal date.  The licensee shall have thirty days after its license is suspended to file an annual report and pay the annual license fee, plus a late filing fee of $250 for each business day after suspension that the commissioner does not receive the annual report and the annual license fee.  The commissioner, for good cause, may grant an extension of the renewal date or reduce or suspend the $250 per day late filing fee.
