What is the fee for filing a mutual fund prospectus?
There are two components to this fee: a flat fee of $1,500 per fund at the time of filing a pro forma or preliminary prospectus, and an additional percentage fee of 0.02% (0.01% for money market funds) based on the proceeds raised in British Columbia by each fund under the prospectus to the extent it exceeds the flat fee previously paid on filing the pro forma or preliminary prospectus. This fee will usually be paid approximately one year later when the proceeds raised under the prospectus are known. Ref: Securities Regulation s. 22(1) New window11-901F, Fee checklist.
