Filing Fee Fedwire Tags and Terminology

April 30, 2015

If a wire transfer of SEC filing fees does not contain the required information in the proper format, the SEC may not be able to identify the payor and the acceptance of filings may be delayed. To ensure proper credit, it is critical that all required information be provided to the sending bank or wire transfer service. SEC data must be inserted in the proper fields.

Third Party Payor submitting payment for Filing:

In this example: ABC Company, CIK9999999998 (Tag {6000}) is the payor having its wire payment submitted to US Bank, and XYZ Company, CIK 9999999995 (Tag {4320}) is the registrant.

Note: Tag {4320} is used when the registrant and payor are not the same, and therefore have different CIK numbers and Tag {6000} is always the payor's CIK.
