SEC Form NSAR-AT

DEFINITION of 'SEC Form NSAR-AT'

A semi-annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that registered investment companies make as part of their NSAR form filing requirement. This filing is made in lieu of the standard filing at the end of their first six months of a year in which the company is in transition due to changing the date of their fiscal year-end. The NSAR, which is specific to registered investment management companies, requires those companies to disclose some financial information (i.e. sales of shares, portfolio turnover rate, etc.) included in the company's annual and/or semi-annual shareholder reports.

BREAKING DOWN 'SEC Form NSAR-AT'
