The SEC adopted amendments to its filing fee disclosure and payment methods. The amendments (i) require companies and funds to report filing fee calculation information in "a structured format" in "most fee-bearing forms, schedules and required [filings]" and (ii) provide new Automated Clearing House and debit and credit card payment options for filing fees.

SEC Chair Gary Gensler said that the amendments facilitate more efficient form processing by the SEC and provide cheaper and easier fee payment options for filers.
