For most companies, the end of June means the end of the second fiscal quarter, which means right now you are hard at work finalizing the company's interim financial statements and preparing its Form 10-Q for an August filing deadline. The end of the second quarter also means that it is time to check the company’s filing status for Exchange Act reports for fiscal 2018.

Below are reminders for the different types of filers.
