UCC Alternative Search Business name: City: All UCC filings are current as of 1/12/2017 Search Info: This alternative search logic is broader in scope than the filing office's standard UCC search logic. The alternative search allows partial matches on the business name searched. This type of search is outside the search rules in revised article nine (RA9) and can not be certified by the secretary of state. This alternative search uses the same search logic used in the Federal lien search. The alternative search is helpful in finding names that are similar too but not exactly the same as the name searched. 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.
