SEC Form D Filing Requirements

You are required to file a Form D with the SEC if you are raising funds form investors via a Reg D offering.

Form D is a required SEC filing for privately held companies that raise capital. It is used to file a notice of exempt securities offering under SEC Reg D.

The Form D must be filed within 15 days of the first sale of securities.

Q: What is an exempt offering of securities?

A: Simply put, funds raised via private offerings. Under federal law, companies may not sell securities unless they have been registered with the SEC or an exemption is available.

To learn more about Reg D, see our page on Reg D.

Once you have your Reg D compliant Private Placement Memorandum completed, visit the SEC website to download and file your Form D.
