Changing Regulations
The proposed rule amendments would modernize filing fee disclosure and payment methods. The proposed amendments would revise most fee-bearing forms, schedules, statements, and related rules to require each fee table and accompanying disclosure to include all required information for fee calculation in a structured format using Inline XBRL. The proposed amendments also would add the option for fee payment via ACH and eliminate the option for fee payment via paper checks and money orders. Finally, the proposed amendments also would make other fee-related revisions. The Commission anticipates that the amendments would, in the aggregate, increase the burdens and costs on affected entities due to changes in fee calculation disclosure requirements and the new requirement to structure fee-related information. For purposes of the PRA, the Commission estimates that, for Form F-4, the proposed amendments would result in an increase of 12 burden hours and an increase in the cost burden of $14,800 for the services of outside professionals.
