2018 SEC Year in Review

In order to keep you current on Securities and Exchange Commission reporting developments, we are pleased to provide you with this newsletter – provided through our participation in BDO Alliance USA – that summarizes significant 2018 developments at the SEC. 

Report Summary: One way to understand the focus and activities of the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2018 would be to quickly peruse the SEC’s near-term Regulatory Flexibility Act agenda published in the Fall of 2017. With Chairman Clayton’s deliberate intention to streamline the agenda and provide greater transparency about where the SEC’s efforts will be concentrated, the Commission advanced 23 out of the 26 rules on the agenda in the past year. Many of the rules and activities that affect financial reporting continued to center on matters related to capital formation, cybersecurity, and the SEC staff’s Disclosure Effectiveness Initiative.
