Uniform Commercial Code

As of today we have processed all UCC filings received in our office through August 24, 2016.

Effective July 1, 2016, the Secretary of State's office will only accept the NEW South Dakota (Form Wizard) or National UCC-1 forms.  EFS Filings must be submitted on the NEW South Dakota EFS forms (Form Wizard). Any filings submitted on old forms will be returned. 

File a UCC:

You may file a UCC online with a prepaid subscription. Otherwise, you may use the form wizard to complete the forms, print and mail to our office with payment.

Becoming a UCC Online Filing System Subscriber will give you unlimited access to search the UCC database, file UCC or EFS financing statements and amendments, or request copies and Certified Searches.

The South Dakota Secretary of State now provides a form wizard to assist in completing UCC and EFS financing statement forms. You may file a financing statement by entering the required information, print the completed form and mail
the form to our office with payment. Using these form wizards will eliminate the possibility of documents being rejected for incomplete or missing information.
