We are not your typical EDGAR filing agent -
we're your filing partner.

SEC Connect is a full service filing agent, established in 2007 to offer clients a flat-fee pricing model, superior client service, and access to an online filing platform that would simplify the reporting process for the most commonly filed forms.

With its often-emulated flat-fee pricing model, SEC Connect eliminated all the variable fees that even today continue to drive up the cost of a typical filing. And SEC Connect hired only individuals experienced in preparing EDGAR and XBRL filings, and representing public companies.

As a result, you’ll notice that SEC Connect is not your typical filing agent– we’re your filing partner, adding value to a process that liberates clients from the traditional public company – EDGAR filing agency relationship. And with the introduction of DCAF, SEC Connect’s Disclosure, Collaboration and Filing System, SEC Connect has realized our founder’s vision of truly simplifying the filing process for public companies, their officers, directors and principal shareholders.
