For SEC filers, there are several key dates to target in 2020, including deadlines for the next phase of organizations who will need to file in Inline XBRLTM format.

To help you keep track of when you need to submit key documents to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Workiva has compiled a calendar filled with critical SEC filing deadlines.

You can choose which version of the calendar to download based on what type of filer you are: large accelerated filer, accelerated filer, or non-accelerated filer. A calendar with all 2020 deadlines is also available, with combined dates for all filers, foreign private issuers, and financial services providers.

SEC filing dates to know in 2020

For companies whose fiscal years end Dec. 31, the calendar marks deadlines for submitting 10-Qs, 10-Ks, and proxies. The calendar also highlights SEC holidays, when the EDGAR system will not receive, process, or accept filings. Plan ahead.

Key date to remember: While large accelerated filers have started submitting financial information in iXBRLTM format, accelerated filers must start doing so for fiscal periods ending on or after June 15, 2020.

Important dates for investment and insurance providers

Investment firms and insurance providers will find the timetables for filing forms including 13-F, N-PORT, N-CEN, N-4, N-6, and N-CSR.

Key dates to remember: The SEC plans to start phasing in requirements in 2020 for funds to file risk/return summary information in iXBRL format. Large fund groups with $1 billion or more in net assets at the end of the most recent fiscal year would start meeting the requirement for initial registration statements (or post-effective amendments that serve as an annual update) that become effective on or after Sept. 17, 2020. Small fund groups with net assets under $1 billion have until Sept. 17, 2021.

SEC filing deadlines for foreign private issuers

Foreign private issuers can use the calendar to track FPI deadlines for Form 20-F, 11-K, 13F, 13H, and SD.
