Hopkinton, MA â€” Electronic Publishing Services, Inc. (EPS) has announced that its online filing workstation for Institutional Investment Managers who are required to file 13F-HR forms in accordance to Section 13(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is an operational success.
In July of this year EDGAR Filing Agent, a division of EPS, implemented the SECâ€™s new XML technical specification for Form 13F that was approved by the SEC earlier this year by creating a website for self-filers to easily file their 13F forms at www.form13f.com. Jim Plumb, President of EPS said, â€œOur development goal was something simple that anyone could use to file without the added complexities of having to know XML. The user simply fills out a form and is able to upload their holdings in an Excel file.â€
When asked about the workability of the workstation, these investment managers had this to say:
â€œIt has made filing so easy!!â€ Irene Brennan â€“ Middleton & Company, Inc.
â€œI must admit that the first time I used Electronic Publishing Servicesâ€™ 13F Online Workstation in the new XML format I was a bit concerned with the process. After some much welcome assistance, I filed for the first time and thought â€œhow easy was that?â€
â€œI am thrilled with the how well the workstation works and even more importantly the amount of money I am able to save handling the process in-house.â€ Kathie Mariano, Salzman & Co., Inc.
Features of Online Workstation

- Save forms for future re-use or amendment.
- Easy upload of the 13F Information Table.
- Test and live file your Form 13F with the SEC; receive and review filing notifications immediately.
