What is SEC Form TA-W?

SEC Form TA-W is a notice of withdrawal from registration that transfer agents submit in compliance with Section 17A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Using this form, transfer agents must supply the reasons for terminating the performance of their functions or for otherwise requesting to withdraw registration.

Additionally, SEC Form TA-W details whether the registrant intends to perform a transfer agent function in the near future; if that agent is directly or indirectly involved in any legal actions or proceedings due to their performance of transfer agent functions for a security; and if there’s a successor transfer agent who will take on the current agent’s activities.

SEC Form TA-W must be filed in XML format with the EDGAR computer system for the receipt, acceptance, review and dissemination of documents submitted in electronic format to the SEC. Upon signing the form, registrants consent to making all books and records available for examination by authorized representatives of the SEC.
