Form 144 electronic filing compliance date is April 13, 2023

Oct. 18, 2022

Pursuant to recent SEC amendments, certain Form 144 filings must be made on the SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) system.  Affected filers have until April 13, 2023 to transition from paper to electronic filing of Form 144. During this transition period, affected filers must ensure that they have an EDGAR account. 

Apply for an EDGAR account
Reporting persons who do not have EDGAR accounts should apply for access to EDGAR as soon as possible, and well before the compliance deadline of April 13, 2023. Applications are not automatically granted and staff may have questions about your application.

Resources for filing electronically
We have created a Form 144—Resources for Filing Electronically webpage to support affected Form 144 filers and filing agents in applying for access to EDGAR and in preparing and submitting the electronic Form 144.
