We understand how challenging it can be to keep track of filing deadlines and prepare your teams to submit your 10-Qs, 10-Ks, and proxies on time for the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Whether you need the EDGAR filing dates for a standard or non-calendar fiscal year end, or you want to plan around the peak periods and market holidays, we wanted to make the process a bit easier for you. That’s why we’ve created the 2021 SEC Filing Calendar for Global Capital Markets.
In this 2021 edition of the calendar, you’ll find:
- A quicksheet, a comprehensive overview of all key dates based on a traditional fiscal year-end (12/31) as well as non-calendar fiscal year-ends, including 3/31, 6/30 or 9/30.
- EDGAR filing dates for large accelerated, accelerated, and non-accelerated filers.
- Peak filing periods and form types.
- Federal Holidays and SEC/US Markets close dates.
- Quarterly report deadlines for institutional investment form types.
- Printable format that displays each month on a page.
Having easy access to all of your key dates, as well as knowing when the EDGAR system will not receive, process or accept filings, means you’ll always be prepared to meet your deadlines. Keep in mind, the EDGAR system’s hours of operation are between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. ET, on weekdays (the EDGAR system is not in operation on weekends), excluding Federal Holidays.
The handy quicksheet that accompanies this calendar gives you a comprehensive overview of all filing dates and 2021-2022 Federal Holidays. If a due date falls on a weekend or a holiday, you’ll see that the filing due date falls on the first business day that immediately follows.
Inline XBRL and FAST Act Tagging
A reminder that this year, all U.S. GAAP and IFRS companies that have not yet had to file with iXBRL and Fast Act tagging must comply beginning with the 10-Q with a fiscal period ending on or after June 15, 2021.
We hope the 2021 SEC Filing Calendar will keep you better informed and on track all year long. You can use it to plan for upcoming deadlines and help you work backwards by getting your legal and corporate teams together and prepare your year-end package —perhaps even leaving a little time to spare.
