In addition to the publication search, COs must retrieve the latest “Form 10-K” for corporations that are required to file. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requires all publicly held corporations to file a “Form 10-K” report annually. Domestic corporations must make their filings on EDGAR, SEC’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis and Retrieval system.
Filings maintained on EDGAR are found at the web address listed below.
