Our correspondent in Columbus, Ohio shares with us the following information:
Starting July 1, 2019, the Ohio Secretary of State will no longer accept paper submitted UCC filings. All UCC filings must be submitted electronically from July 1, 2019 forward.
The Ohio Secretary of State updated their system last year to improve the electronic UCC filing system. When the UCC filing system was first updated, they would still allow paper filing submissions.
However, our correspondent received word from the Director of Business Services that the Ohio Secretary of State will no longer process paper UCC filings starting July 1, 2019. All UCC filings must be completed and submitted online.
Continental Corporate Services will continue to accept your paper prepared UCC filings. These paper UCC filings will be sent to our correspondent in Ohio and electronically submitted for filing.
