The transferee must complete the transferee`s certification, which is also part of form 5 of the ATF. An ATF officer must complete a special section of this form for the ATF Form 5 to be valid. The main recipient of the form is the Directorate General of the National Firearms Law (NFA).

Form ATF 5, Application for transfer and registration of a tax-exempt firearm – also known as Form ATF 5320.5 or Electronic Form ATF 5 – is a form you fill out to request a tax-free transfer of a firearm. The information provided on this form is used by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to verify that the proposed transfer can be tax-exempt and comply with federal, state, and local laws. Be aware of this when entering a firearms trust name in the form, as it cannot be changed.
A firearm is registered by name in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Registry with the Trust. So, if you need to change the name of the gun trust, you must first find a new trust with the name you want. After that, you can transfer the firearms to that trust. The ATF distributes the form with a set of guidelines attached. These guidelines contain definitions of all the terms you need to understand in order to complete the form, including the term “unusable firearm”. They also include an explanation of when a person may not be considered to have the right to possess or send a firearm. Additional step-by-step instructions on how to install it can be found below. As mentioned above, Form 5 must be completed in duplicate for each firearm to be transferred. Be very careful when filling out the form, check the instructions before you start. An applicant for Form ATF 5320.5 can be a business, trust, individual or licensed dealer. This form applies to the transfer of tax-exempt firearms in several cases: • Personal data of the transferor and transferee (including federal firearms licence numbers and, if applicable, employer identification numbers); • Description of the firearm and any additional information about it; • All provisions contained at the time of approval of the application (this must be entered by the NFA official); • Certification of the transferee (this should not be completed if an assignee is a government agency); As we have been establishing gun trusts for many years, we are seeing more and more people who have to transfer firearms to the rightful heir on a Form 5 after the death of the original purchaser.
