NM Stat § 58-15-10 (1996 through 1st Sess 50th Legis) What's This?

58-15-10. Books and records; annual reports; additional information.

A. Each licensee shall keep and use in the business such books, accounts and records in accordance with sound accounting practices that will enable the director to determine whether the licensee is complying with the provisions of the New Mexico Small Loan Act of 1955 [58-15-31 NMSA 1978] and with the orders and regulations lawfully made by the director pursuant to the provisions of that act. Each licensee shall preserve the books, accounts and records for at least two years after making the final entry on a loan recorded therein.

B. Each licensee shall, annually on or before March 31, file a report with the director giving such relevant information as the director may reasonably require concerning the business and operations during the preceding calendar year for each licensed place of business conducted by the licensee within the state pursuant to the provisions of the New Mexico Small Loan Act of 1955. The report shall be made under oath and shall be in the form prescribed by the director. A summary of the reports shall be included in the published annual report of the director.

C. At the time of filing each annual report, at the time of the annual examination or at any other time when a license is in effect, the director may, upon written notice, require a licensee to furnish within twenty days in writing, and under oath if so specified by any written notice issued and served by the director upon the licensee, additional information as to ownership of any office; operation of any office; books, records, files and papers; and affiliation or relationship with any other person, firm, trust, association or corporation as, in the opinion of the director, may be helpful in the discharge of the director's official duties.

D. False or misleading information willfully furnished to the director by a licensee in an annual report or pursuant to a notice or requirement of the director is sufficient grounds for suspension and revocation of license in accordance with the procedures for suspension or revocation of license set forth in the New Mexico Small Loan Act of 1955.
