Business Services Online has been designed to save customers time, money and hassle. We recognized that it was not only important to provide these services online, but to also make them user-friendly, accurate and easy to understand. In particular, the new UCC services offer valuable tips, provide logical navigation and even remember frequently used filing information in the user's personal profile.
Now fully computerized with a new system designed to comply with new rules under Revised Article 9, UCC filing documents have been imaged and data-entered to enable SOS staff to operate more efficiently, and provide customers with the ability to access this time-sensitive information remotely.
We believe that you will often find the Internet to be the most cost-effective method of doing business with our office. These convenient, online services are available at no cost, or for a minimal convenience fee depending on the service. In fact, it is cheaper to conduct UCC services online than through the traditional means.
