Guide to Common Filing Errors

This guide explores three common filing errors, how they occur, their consequences and how to avoid them.


As public companies strive to drive the bottom line and ultimately attract investors, financial professionals are tasked with presenting disclosures in a clear, compliant and timely manner. This is becoming increasingly difficult with new mandates and changing standards. With the SEC’s reins tightening on noncompliance and deficiencies, public companies everywhere are looking for ways to avoid errors.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Why the SEC is beginning to penalize noncompliance and major errors in XBRL formatting.
  • Why material weaknesses go overlooked and how to strengthen internal controls to ensure accurate information.
  • Why filing on time is imperative and how filing late impacts the investor’s perception.


Together, we’re in it to win it.
