Form D

What is Form D?

Form D is a form you file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) if you want to offer and sell securities without registering the offering. The filing is one way to claim an exemption under Regulation D, which allows you to avoid the otherwise lengthy and costly registration process (i.e., going public). 

If you’re trying to raise money from VC funds and accredited investors, a Form D filing can help you stay compliant. You must file the form within 15 business days of the first sale during the offering.  

Your Form D filings are also accessible to the public. If you or your investors would prefer to avoid the potential publicity, there may be other types of exemptions available. But consult with an attorney who is familiar with securities law to ensure you remain compliant with applicable state and federal requirements.
