Fedwire Instructions

The Filing Fees Branch is responsible for validating and collecting fees pursuant to Section 6(b) of the Securities Act of 1933 and Sections 13(e) and 14(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Fees are generally associated with companies registering securities or debt, tender offers, and merger/acquisition transactions. For more information, please visit the Filing Fees Branch.

Any bank or wire transfer service may initiate wire transfers of filing fee payments through the Fedwire system to US Bank. The hours of operation at US Bank are 8:30am to 6:30pm EST for wires.

Below is the Fedwire Instructions to ensure proper credit and prompt filing and acceptance. It is important to Include:

– the payor’s SEC-assigned CIK (Central Index Key) 
– and the US Treasury account number designated for SEC filers, which must be obtained by:

  • Login into EDGAR
  • Select “Fees” on the left navigation bar
  • Reference Fed Tag {4200} 

A Filing Fee FEDWIRE Payment Template is available here. To ensure proper credit, it is critical that all required information be provided to the sending bank or wire transfer service.

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 the filing may be delayed.

ACH, Credit Card, Debit Card

Filers must login to EDGAR first to access Pay.gov and make ACH, credit card, or debit card filing fee payments. ACH payments generally take 1-3 business days to process and to be reflected in EDGAR. Credit card and debit card payments are expected to be available within 15 minutes, but may take up to 24 hours before being reflected in EDGAR. Filers should time their payments and filings accordingly.

To initiate an ACH, credit card, or debit card filing fee payment:

  1. Access the EDGAR Filing Website and login or submit a Form ID to request access.
  2. Click the “Submit Filing Fee Payment” link on the left navigation menu.
  3. Enter data in the following required fields, in the proper format:
    • The Payor’s SEC-assigned CIK (Central Index Key)
    • Payor CCC
    • Payment Amount
    • Name
    • Email
    • Phone
  4. Filers will then be redirected to https://pay.gov to provide payment details and submit payment. Filers will be returned to EDGAR once they have submitted payment on pay.gov.

Filing fee payments must be submitted during EDGAR operating hours (6 am – 10 pm ET, Monday–Friday except federal holidays), and payments attempted outside of those hours will not be accepted.

Please ensure filing fee payments are within the payment limits noted below for each payment type:

  • ACH: $1 – $99,999,999.99 per transaction
  • Credit Card: $1 – $24,999.99 daily and per filing fee payment
  • Debit Card: $1 – $99,999,999.99 or available funds, whichever is lower

Effective May 31, 2022, checks or money orders are no longer accepted for filing fee payments. Any check or money order received on or after this date will be returned to filers without further processing, and filers will have to submit payments using an alternate payment method prior to submitting a filing that requires fees to be paid.
