FreeEdgar Will Cost $9.95 per Month
The free e-mail service, FreeEdgar that provides consumers with an e-mail notification of SEC filings of particular companies will begin charging a $9.95 per month fee for customers tracking over five companies. Customers can still look up information for free on the site, noted Senior Vice President Jay Sears.
The Watchlist accounts provided by FreeEdgar have been moved to Edgar Online and will be activated once the customer subscribes to the Edgar Online site.
FreeEdgar is the latest free Internet service that has decided to charge for some or all services. The decision follows a change in strategy by the company to start charging customers for premium services offered on Web portals.
If customers don't upgrade, their Watchlist service will be disabled Friday.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
