July Billing and Waiver Reminder

Digests No Comments »

Important Billing Reminder: Please share this with your fellow brokers and agents!

Next billing for credit card and ACH customers is Friday, July 1, 2011. Payments by check are also due by Friday, July 1st.

If you are placing your license INACTIVE, or if you are surrendering your license, we must receive a copy of your DCCA change form. We request that changes be submitted to us 4 to 5 business days prior to the billing date, so please send your form(s) in by Friday, June 24, 2011 to assure that your changes or cancellations will be processed before the billing on July 1, 2011. Once we charge your credit card or debit your account, there is no refund.

Please contact us before the billing occurs if you would like to make any changes to your billing.

If you need to change your payment account, please go to this link:

Exhibit C – Pre-authorized Payment Agreement

Print and complete this form, sign it and fax your new Exhibit C to (808) 524-6874. Please note that your broker does not have to sign this form if you are only changing your account information.

If you need to change your payment frequency, please notify us by one of the following methods:

It is the responsibility of the PB to insure that the fees that are due are paid by the 10th of each month or service may be interrupted to the entire office on the 11th.

Each PB must be responsible for his/her own agents. If an agent is not able to pay his/her MLS fees, the PB has the following choices.

  • Release the agent, placing their license inactive with DCCA, and providing a copy of the release to HIS BEFORE the July 1st billing. The agent’s signature is not required.
  • Loan the agent sufficient funds to pay the MLS fees due.
  • Pay the fees due on behalf of the agent.

The PB is responsible for managing the roster for his/her office. Fees will continue to be billed until a copy of the DCCA change form is received by HIS from the PB.

As always, we appreciate your cooperation.

Waiver Applications/Renewals Are Due Now!

Do you have agents, assistants, or other staff that qualify for an MLS Waiver? Waiver applications and renewals are DUE NOW! Please read this important information about waiver applications.
