US regulators require all investors to receive certain documents pertaining to their Accounts. The documents must be made available to clients through your application. DriveWealth allows registered counter-parties to brand these documents with their logo and contact details.
UAT statement generation
The sandbox does not automatically support the generation of statements. If you try to retrieve a statement in the UAT environment you will not get a response. Please contact DriveWealth to enable sandbox dummy statements for testing purposes.
## Trade confirmations
A Trade Confirmation is a required notification of a securities transaction. These are made available T+1. The customer must have access to this document prior to the completion of the settlement cycle (T+2).
## Month-end account statements
The month-end account statement details a user's activity during a month and is uploaded to the user's accounts on the first weekend of every month; no later than the 10th of the month. Account Statements are typically available the first weekend, monthly.

## Retrieving documents
Fetching a list of documents available can be done via 3 APIs:
[List Trade Confirms](🔗)
[List Tax Documents](🔗)
You can set the date range in the query params of the GET request to retrieve the statements for a given period of time. See the examples below:
In the above examples, the statements for January and February of 2023 will be returned. The response will contain a `
displayName` and `
Use the fileKey and accountID to fetch the individual statement URL from the [Statements Endpoint](🔗). The `
url` field links the PDF version of the account statement; this is a temporary URL and will expire after 5 minutes.
The above methodology works exactly the same for month-end statements, trade confirmations and tax forms.
## Document notifications
DriveWealth does not send out direct notifications to customers when these official documents are made available.
You can take advantage of the [Statement Events API](🔗) in order to receive a notification on your SQS queue when a new document has been made available. That Event can then be consumed and published back out through your platform in any way seen fit.
Generally when sending a notification to a customer that their document has been made available (like over email), the physical document is not included in that notification to protect customer PII. Instead, a link to the reports section within the platform is given for customers to access.
## Hosted reports
DriveWealth additionally offers a Customer Reporting Portal that can be accessed directly through a DriveWealth hosted webpage. If a user were to close their account with you halfway through the year they could still retrieve their documents in the [Customer Reporting Portal](🔗).
Customers can also update their tax form information through the portal.
