The Department of Commerce has developed an internet based application to allow for the electronic filing of franchise filings. The goal is to save filers printing and postage costs as well as increase efficiency of departmental review.
Make sure documents are PDF files and are less than 10mb.
Login to the application and choose the submit documents menu choice.
Follow the instructions to complete your submission.
Remember: when submitting documents always submit public documents before private documents. Submit private files last. No additional documents can be submitted after private documents are uploaded.
Print one confirmation page for your records and one to submit with payment.
When the fee is received, Department staff will review the submission.
If the document contains deficiencies you will receive an email outlining the correction needed.
When the Department determines that the submission is complete, it will accept the submission and will email the filer an Order of Registration. Public documents in the submission will be publicly available in our CARDS system and will be immediately available under the Franchise Registrations area.
Do not fix and resubmit the original document. Prepare a new black-lined document that only contains the deficiency corrections and submit only the marked pages.
Login to the application and choose Deficiency Response.
Only submit the deficiency correction PDF document you created.
