Adobe Acrobat Reader MUST be used to fill-in and submit the Form BE.
Even though there are other programs or software such as Foxit Pro and Nitro that will allow you to open, fill-in and save the Form BE, the Commission has found that using these other programs will corrupt the Form BE and make it unable to be processed by the Commission’s system. Therefore, in order to complete the filing process without corrupting the form, the Form BE must first be opened and saved to your computer using the Official “Free Adobe Reader.” This free reader software can be downloaded from the Adobe site at get.adobe.com/reader/.
Only then can you download and use the form without risk of having your filing rejected. Unfortunately, when a form has already been opened in one of these other programs it will need to be discarded and a new form downloaded and opened only in Adobe Reader.
The Adobe Reader is compatible with all PCs and MACs. Download the Free Adobe Reader HERE >>.
To make sure you are using the correct program, after opening the form, the top left of the form will show the form name followed by either Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat Pro (see images below)
