Filing Requirements for Regulation D Offerings

Nebraska Requirements for Regulation D Filings

An issuer who is offering or selling securities upon Regulation D, Rule 506 is required to make a notice filing with the Department. The issuer may file the document either in paper or electronically.   

 

What to File

An issuer electing to make the notice filing in paper format must submit the following documents to the Department:

  • An authenticated paper copy of the notice of sale on Form D that was filed electronically with the SEC. The form is available at SEC Form D
  • Nebraska requires that you submit the state appendix pages. State Appendix Pages
  • The filings must be accompanied by the requisite fee. The fee is $200

Form U-2, Uniform Consent to Service of Process, is not required because the Form D contains a consent to service of process for state administrators.

All documents should be submitted to the following address: Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance
Bureau of Securities
1526 K Street, Suite 300
Lincoln, NE 68508-2732

All filings shall be submitted with the appropriate filing fee

In order to make an electronic filing on Form D with the SEC, an issuer will need to obtain an EDGAR access code. EDGAR access codes may be obtained by following the instructions on the SEC EDGAR Website. For additional information on how to file with the SEC, go to SEC Guidance on Form D Filing Process.

 

Electronic Filing

An issuer wishing to make the notice filing electronically may do so using the North American Securities Administrators Association’s Electronic Filing Depository which can be found at www.efdnasaa.org. Filers submitting electronically must submit the following

  • Form D  
  • Sales Report
  • $200 filing fee which is collected by the system

Note: The EFD system charges a processing fee which is in addition to the filing fee paid to the Department. Please refer to the NASAA EFD website for further information concerning processing fees.

 

When to File

Regardless of whether the issuer elects to file in paper or electronically, the Form D must be filed no later than 15 calendar days after the first sale of securities in Nebraska. If the 15th day falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday the due date is the next business day.

 

Late Filings with Nebraska

A Form D filed after the due date described above will void the exemption in Nebraska.

 

When to File an Amendment with Nebraska

An amendment Form D must be filed in certain circumstances. Chapter 20 outlines the situations that require an amended Form D to be filed. The requirements in Chapter 20 are identical to the requirements established by the SEC which can be found here.

Requests for additional information or questions regarding the new filing requirements for Regulation D may be directed to: Debbie Yost, Staff Assistant, or Morgan Lorenzen, Legal Counsel, or by calling the Nebraska Bureau of Securities 402-471-2171.
