What is SEC Form TA-2?
Transfer agents submit SEC Form TA-2 as a means of providing an annual report of transfer activities. These activities comprise transactions between issuers of securities and their holders – from recording ownership changes to distributing dividends. They submit SEC Form TA-2 to one of four regulatory agencies; Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the SEC.
SEC Form TA-2 is required based on the provisions set forth under Section 17A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. This form is used as a means of providing oversight of transfer agents by regulatory bodies. The SEC also conducts transfer agent inspections on a periodic basis.
Transfer agents must file SEC Form TA-2 with the SEC in XML format via the EDGAR computer system for the receipt, acceptance, review and dissemination of documents submitted in electronic format to the SEC. For support and additional information, explore our SEC reporting solutions.
