(4) The financial statements required by this section must be filed with the director within one hundred twenty days following the end of your fiscal year, except for the audited financial statements of pooled investment vehicles you obtain and distribute pursuant to WAC 460-24A-107(1), which must be filed with the director within one hundred twenty days following the end of each pooled investment vehicle's fiscal year. (5) If you are an investment adviser that has its principal place of business in a state other than this state, you must file only such reports as required by the state in which you maintain your principal place of business, provided that you are licensed in such state and are in compliance with such state's financial reporting requirements.
