As an example, I downloaded the annual report of British American Tobacco Plc.
The pdf file has the following name automatically assigned:
British American Tobacco PLC 13-MAR-2017 FullYear 43128263.pdf
Is 13-MAR-2017 the receipt date or the filing date? For most companies, these two dates are identical, but not for all firms. When comparing those, I assume that the date in the pdf file name is the filing date. Is this correct?
Thank you in advance!
