Our SEC EDGAR Filing Process

It is not necessary to set up an account with us; we will invoice you for our services. In cases of a large initial filing we may require a deposit in advance of the filing.
Our filing process is composed of 5 steps:
1. Let us know your CCC and CIK codes and provide any special instructions.
2. If your filing includes fees we will confirm the fees owing and ensure there are sufficient funds in your SEC bank account. We will also check to ensure your filing codes are correct and in working order.
3. E-mail the documents to be filed to and give us a call to ensure we have received your message. Whenever practical please send us a carefully reviewed hard copy of your documents as well as the electronic version. This will ensure that the EDGARized version will look as close as is possible to your original documents.
4. Our staff will convert the submitted documents into the SEC EDGAR HTML format. Please note we can EDGARize documents from paper or most popular word processing, spreadsheet or desktop publishing software.
5. If instructed we will place a copy of your EDGAR filing on our proofs server for your review. EDGAR filings on our proofs server are accessible via a web browser and make use of a username and password for security purposes.
6. Once we receive your final approval we will formally submit the filing to the SEC on your behalf. Once the filing has been accepted by the SEC the email acceptance letter is forwarded to you. An invoice for our services will be mailed shortly afterwards.
Process FAQs

What exactly does EDGARization mean?

EDGARization is the process of converting parent documents - MS Word, MS Excel, PDF, Word Perfect, etc - into acceptable SEC EDGAR ASCII or HTML format. Once EDGARized, the documents can be submitted to the SEC via the EDGAR system.

How long will it take to EDGARize a document?

As an approximation of the time required use a conversion rate of 15 pages per hour. For example, a Form 10QSB consisting of approximately 25 pages will take anywhere from 2-3 hours to put into an acceptable format.
