Welcome to the Iowa Secretary of State's Online Business Center. The Business Center is a resource of the Business Services Division that is responsible for filing documents such as UCC financing statements, trademarks, business entity documents, and other statutorily required special filings.
On July 1, 2013, UCC Article 9 changes went into effect. Due to these changes filers are required to use new approved UCC forms. Previous versions of the forms will be rejected. National UCC forms are available here.
Note: The Secretary of State's Office is a filing repository and does not determine the authority of a filer to make a submission. It is the responsibility of authorized filers to frequently check the status of filings on the Web site to ensure protection against submissions by an unauthorized party. If you determine that a submission was not authorized, it is your responsibility to seek legal action to protect your status.
