The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has posted in its website SEC Memorandum Circular No. 16, Series of 2013 dated September 13, 2013 setting forth the schedule of filing of the annual financial statements of companies with fiscal year ends December 31, 2013.

Filing Date Last Digit of SEC Registration/License
April 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 “1” , “2”
April 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 “3” , “4”
April 28, 29, 30, May 2 “5” , “6”
May 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 “7” , “8”
May 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 “9” , “0”

On January 13, 2014, the SEC posted a notice in its website stating the hours of filing financial statements to the commission on April 14, 15 and 16 since April 17 and 18 are non-working holiday, as follows:

Even if the last two filing days of companies with last digit of SEC registration/license number of “1” , “2” are holidays, the SEC did not grant any extension.  Financial statements filer should then be reminded to file early to avoid inconvenience.

As stated in SEC Memorandum Circular No. 16, Series of 2013, prior to April 14, 2014, filers may file regardless of the last digit of their registration or license.  So why wait that long? File your financial statements early. 🙂
