Annual Financial Reporting

All concession contracts require concessioners to submit an annual financial report, commonly referred to as the AFR. There are two report formats: a long form and a short form for smaller concession contracts. Both versions include a statement of income, balance sheet, detail of gross receipts and operational statistics. The submittal of AFRs by concessioners is an electronic process as outlined below.

The new AFR Web Entry system is up and running. The AFR Web Entry system allows users to enter, save and submit their AFR information directly into a web browser. The system was designed in response to the issues many concessioners have with the excel forms or with Macintosh computers. The AFR Web Entry system works for both the AFR Short Form and AFR Long Form, and includes the exact same information as the excel forms. Account information and password are the same for the new system as the old system.

For the duration of the FY2013 AFR submission, concessioners may choose to use the new AFR Web Entry system or the old AFR Submission system. Beginning with the submission of FY2014 AFRs, the old system will be removed and the new AFR Web Entry system will be required.

Instructions for the NEW AFR Web Entry System

Please download and review the AFR Web Entry User’s Guide. After reviewing the guide, please follow the link to the left to request a user account and then, after entering your information in the appropriate forms, use the submit tab to submit them electronically. If you have additional supporting documents to upload, for example additional notes to financial statements, you will have the opportunity to attach those to your AFR submission.

Please use the most recent version of Google Chrome or Microsoft Internet Explorer for the new AFR web entry system. The web entry system is not fully compatible with the Safari internet browser at this time.

Instructions for the OLD AFR Submission System

Please download and use the most updated forms posted on this site. Although they look the same, there have been minor technical changes- concessioners may not use prior forms to file 2013 AFRs. The updated electronic AFR Short Form should be used for all concessions with gross receipts less than $500,000. Contracts with gross receipts of $500,000 or greater must use the AFR Long Form. The electronic AFR forms are not compatible with Mac computers. The supplemental Short Form Fees Worksheet is available to assist concessioners who use the Short Form and have deductions from gross receipts and/or have a tiered franchise fee.

After reviewing the AFR Excel User's Guide, please follow the link to the left to request a user account and then, after filling out the appropriate forms, submit them electronically.
