Pencils Down? Not with Wdesk

October 6, 2011
During the past filing season, we were disappointed to hear, but not surprised that SEC filing companies were asked to go “pencils down” up to 14 business days prior to filing. In one particular LinkedIn discussion, a director of external reporting asked, “For large accelerated filers, have you heard from (company name withheld) that you need to have a 'close to final' 10-Q submitted 14 business days prior to filing and red-line from there? That seems absurd.” But it doesn't have to be that way. At WebFilings, we say“No More Pencils Down,” and we back that message with our collaborative, cloud-based, end-to-end External Reporting Solution.
