EDGAR SBS Entity Forms XML Technical Specification (Version 1.1)

Implementation Date: September 30, 2019

The EDGAR SBS Entity Forms XML Technical Specification (Version 1.1) document describes the valid structure and content of the SBS Entity Forms Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) Extensible Markup Language (XML) submission types. This specification provides, to those filers that are interested, the basis for creating SBS Entity Forms XML submissions. The expectation is that software developers, working on behalf of filers, will be able to construct software that will generate an SBS Entity Form XML submission that can be successfully processed by the EDGAR system.

The SBS Entity Form submission file must conform to the EDGAR SBS Entity Form Submission Taxonomy for the EDGAR system. This taxonomy comprises a collection of XML Schema Definition (.xsd) files that defines the structure of EDGAR SBS Entity Forms submissions. The SBS Entity Forms XML submissions can be transmitted to the SEC via the ‘Transmit’ link on the EDGAR FilerWeb (https://www.edgarfiling.sec.gov/) or the ‘Transmit XML Submission’ link on the EDGAR OnlineForms/XML Website (https://www.onlineforms.edgarfiling.sec.gov).

EDGAR Release 19.3 will introduce the following changes:

  • Changes to Stylesheets:
    • Removed Schedule C
  • Changes to schema:
    • Removed Schedule C
  • In Sections 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6 of the Technical Specification:
