About the Branch
When registering certain types of securities, registrants are required to file documentation with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission through EDGAR. Some of these form types have associated filing fees, such as filings registering new securities or debt.
The Filing Fees Branch, part of the SEC’s Office of Financial Management, is responsible for validating and collecting fees under various provisions of the securities laws.
