SEC Filing Deadlines, Holidays and Dates to Know in 2020
For SEC filers, there are several key dates to target in 2020, including deadlines for the next phase of organisations who will need to file in Inline XBRL® 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 31 Dec, 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 iXBRL® format, accelerated filers must start doing so for fiscal periods ending on or after 15 June 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 17 Sept 2020. Small fund groups with net assets under $1 billion have until 17 Sept 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.
