FFL – Making Changes
One thing we have discovered about our customers and potential customers is that many of them like to move around occasionally. Some may move because they are in the military; others simply end up moving by chance. Either way, a concern that frequently comes up is “what happens if I move?”
Changing location is not as big of a deal as one might believe. Within the guide, we explain the procedure to update your FFL correctly when the address of the license needs to be changed. By following the instructions Brandon has laid out, you will not need to start the application process over simply to update the address on the FFL license! This works whether you move to a new house, new city, or new state. It’s also effective if you decide to open a storefront location.
Another change frequently asked about is changing or adding members or responsible parties to the FFL. Once again, Brandon has outlined this process in the guide to prevent you from needing to apply for a different FFL license. The FFL guide also gives you tips on who you should have as a responsible party on your FFL and who can just be considered an employee, as someone considered an employee still has some flexibility pertaining to matters with your FFL license.
There are a few situations in which you may need to apply for a brand new FFL, depending on the changes you’d like to make. If actual ownership of the FFL is changing, then the ATF will want you to apply for a new license. For example, if you decide to change from a sole proprietor to a LLC after you’ve already received your license, the ATF will see that as a new ownership as taking place. They’ll want you to get a new license.
