SEC/EDGAR Electronic Filing Services

The Securities Law Institute, Inc. (“SLI”) can facilitate your SEC filings in an effortless manner for a reasonable fee. Your Company may continue to create SEC filings with any existing word processing or spreadsheet software. SLI will convert your document to the EDGAR format (EDGARize) and transmit your filing directly to the SEC EDGAR Database.

SLI’s EDGAR Service

  • SLI has expertise in the EDGAR filing process and securities law. We can also provide advice to clients who file by paper and assist clients who want to do their own filings.

What is EDGAR?

  • EDGAR stands for Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval. It is a computer system that was developed to accept, store and distribute documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Who has to file by EDGAR?

  • The SEC requires all full reporting publicly held companies to submit their filings electronically through the EDGAR system.

What is the Process?

  • Your company may either transmit your filing to SLI by electronic mail or send disk by overnight courier.

  • SLI will EDGARize your document and fax a proof to your company for review and approval. This is usually accomplished within twenty-four hours.

  • If this is a first filing, SLI will submit a "test filing" for no additional fee. SLI will then transmit a live submission to the SEC.

  • Upon acceptance, SLI will fax a copy of the SEC confirmation to your company.

  • If not accepted, SLI will determine the status quickly by electronic mail and immediately facilitate the corrective action in order to assure the filing is re-submitted by the filing deadline
