New Form 4473 (Revised May 2020)

Electronic Form 4473

We’re excited to announce the release of FastBound, which incorporates the new Form 4473 (Revised May 2020) mandated for use by FFLs on November 1, 2020.

Form 4473 Changes For May 2020

We have been working hard on this release for a few months. The new Form 4473 (Revised May 2020) not only drastically changes the form it also drastically changes the workflow associated with the new 4473. Some of the improvements made to just the 4473 include:

  • With the addition of the Non-Binary gender, the multiple sale process needed to be updated as well.
  • The changes in the 4473 process now allow you to attach any existing disposition to a 4473.
  • Prevent the creation of duplicate 4473s.
  • E-signature completion dialog now reflects proceed/denied/etc.
  • Linking Q36 Transfer Date with the Number of Items.
  • Improving the usability of the 4473 pages on phone-sized displays.
  • When items are attached to a pending disposition, we added a convenient link to the pending disposition.
  • Update contact details with 4473 details when assigning a contact to a 4473.
