Disclosure Simplification News – The Effective Date!

The Disclosure Simplification and Update final rule has now been publishedin the Federal Register.  And BIG THANKS to Marvin Tagaban of Ropes and Gray for the heads -up!

As you can read in the link above, the effective date for the changes will be filings made on or after November 5, 2018.  So all the changes will be in effect for calendar year-end companies.

That said, don’t forget, for the addition of changes in shareholder equity information in Form 10-Q the SEC published a C&DI granting a bit of relief as we discussed in this post.

As always, your thoughts and comments are  welcome!

  1. Did you mean, for filings made “beginning” on November 5, as opposed to “after November 5” indicated in the blog? The effective date indicated in the Federal Register is November 5.

    1. Hi Justyna! Thanks for the comment, and I added the words “on or” to be clear! As usual I got a bit to excited as I drafted.

      Thanks again,
