Top 4 reasons why SEC filers outside USA choose DataTracks to file Form 40-F

Canadian corporations registered in Canada, but trading in the US are required by the United States Government to file Form 40-F. The filing of Form 40-F to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is in compliance with the Securities Act, which mandates an annual registry of securities traded in the US markets. The primary goal of Form 40-F is to allow investors to make informed decisions based on the company’s financial statements, along with other prerequisite information about the corporation’s objectives and operational overview.

Though over a decade since XBRL was adopted as a pre-requisite by the SEC, filing annual reports remains challenging for many finance professionals. Conversion of account statements to XBRL format is time-consuming and requires precision for tagging. It is also not trivial to ascertain the accuracy of the account as the process requires multiple iterations. Misrepresentation/ errors in the registration statement can lead to legal liabilities.

Overcoming the challenges of SEC compliance 

To tackle these challenges posed for SEC compliance, a versatile understanding, accurate financial representation, and a keen understanding of intricacies in a company’s financial statement is necessary. Knowledge and experience in XBRL technology and comprehension of SEC rules are vital to achieve this. The most effective way companies manage SEC compliance is by outsourcing SEC regulatory compliance.
