Completing the New (2020) Form 4473

From transfers to inspections to trace, the Form 4473 is a critical document for all firearms retailers. The new Form 4473 contains substantial changes over the previous form. ATF strongly encourages all FFLs to begin using this new form immediately; however, it is not mandatory until Nov. 1, 2020. This course is designed to take you step-by-step through a big picture overview and then line-by-line through the nuances of completing each section of the new form.
