edgarWebR provides an interface to access the SEC’s EDGAR system for company financial filings.

EdgarWebR does not provide any functionality to extract financial data or other information from filings, only the metadata and company information. For processing of the financia data.


The EDGAR System provides a number of tools for filing and entity lookup and examination. edgarWebR will eventually support all of the provided tools, but for now it is focused on covering company and fund search and resultant filings.
