Not that it was all that difficult to begin with, but the SEC has released an online tool to help companies calculate registration fees for certain form submissions to EDGAR. According to the SEC’s press release, “the new tool is intended to improve the accuracy of fee calculations and minimize the need for corrections.” The new tool covers the most common filings companies use to register initial public offerings, debt offerings, asset-backed securities, closed-end mutual funds, limited partnerships, and small business investment companies. The tool prompts users to enter data based on the type of filing and the applicable fee rules and provides suggestions for completing required fee tables based on the data entered. Of course, the SEC reminds filers that this is just a tool to help - companies will remain responsible for paying all required fees and accurately including all required information in their filings.
