EDGAR Filer Handbook: A Guide for Electronic Filing with the SEC

Front Cover
Aspen Publishers Online, 2001 - Law
Due to renovations to EDGAR, the new fifth edition of EDGAR Filer Handbook is more essential than ever. All procedures to assemble, validate and transmit filings to EDGAR are entirely new as the DOS-based EDGARLink is replaced by the new EDGAR Filing web site. Prepared by experts with an intimate working knowledge of the EDGARLink system, the Handbook helps you stay current with the latest SEC electronic reporting procedures. It explains step-by-step how to prepare and submit documents for electronic filing precisely and efficiently.

Updated to incorporate all the new and revised procedures through EDGAR and EDGARLink Release 7.0.f, you get hands-on assistance to help you make sense of new EDGARLink screen-display formats used to locate files; follow new procedures for assembly of modules and segments when mating a submission file; file financial data schedules according to new year-to-year reporting requirements; understand enhancements to the dialing script used when accessing EDGAR through EDGARLink; and much more. More than 120 sample screens illustrate EDGARLInk documents, formats, tags, and messages, and easy-to-follow tables identify mandatory and optional tags used with each document.
