Pursuant to recent SEC amendments, certain Form 144 filings must be made on the SECâ€™s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) system. By April 13, 2023, affected filers must have transitioned from paper to electronic filing of Form 144. During this transition period, affected filers must ensure that they have an EDGAR account.Â
The electronic filing requirement applies to all Form 144 filings, except for reports related to securities of issuers that do not file 1934 Act reports with the SEC on EDGAR. Â
Apply for an EDGAR account
Reporting persons who do not have EDGAR accounts should apply for access to EDGAR as soon as possible, and well before compliance is required on April 13, 2023. Applications are not automatically granted and staff may have questions about your application.
