On April 18, the Securities and Exchange Commission announced the release of an online tool that will assist companies in calculating registration fees relating to certain forms to be filed on EDGAR, the SEC’s electronic filing database. The registration fee estimator is intended to help issuers more accurately estimate registration filing fees and complete related fee tables. In its press release, however, the SEC cautions issuers that the tool will not serve as an official SEC verification of fees and reminds issuers that they remain responsible for paying all required fees.
