SEC Forms – 10K, 10Q, 8K, 20F, 40F, S1

DataTracks offers XBRL tagging service for a variety of SEC forms which include 10-K, 10-Q, 8-K, 20-F, 40-F and registration statements (S-1). The tagging is done using the latest XBRL taxonomy developed by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and which is accepted by the SEC for use in the XBRL conversion.

With a competitive cost structure and a large talent pool of accounting experts, DataTracks provides a quick turnaround of the XBRL output (2-5 days depending on the complexity of the document).

The following are some of the definitions for the SEC forms as given by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC):

10-K Annual report pursuant to Section 13 and 15(d). This form is intended to provide the financial condition and the performance of the company for an annual period in a comprehensive manner.
10-Q Quarterly report pursuant to Section 13 or 15(d). This form is intended to provide the continuing view of the company’s financial position during the year and it generally contains unaudited financial statements. Form 10-Q is normally filed for the first three fiscal quarters of the company’s fiscal year.
S-1, S-1/A General form of registration statement for all companies including face-amount certificate companies. Essentially, this is the form that companies (or securities) have to file when they apply for an Initial Public Offering (IPO).
8-K, 8-K/A Current Report Filing. This form is required to be filed when any material corporate events that the shareholders should know about are held. There could be any number of these in a year.
20-F, 20-F/A Annual and Transition Report of Foreign Private Issuers pursuant to Sections 13 or 15(d). This form is to be filed by ‘foreign private issuers’ that are listed on the US stock exchange.
40-F, 40-F/A Annual Reports filed by certain Canadian issuers pursuant to Section 15(d) and Rule 15d-4. This is essentially Form 20-F for Canadian companies.
