UCC Updates: December 2023

Posted by Brooks Ferrett

Effective July 1 of this year, the International Association of Commercial Administrators (IACA) put forth new national forms for UCC1 (Financing Statement) and UCC3 (Financing Statement Amendment)

Almost all states accept the new 2023 forms with only a few exceptions.

A few states, such as Florida, still have their own forms that filers may use. If a filer in, say, Florida, prefers to use the new national forms, they must add a Documentary Tax Statement to the national form.  

Additionally, New York does not accept the national form at the Secretary of State or County levels. A specific form is required and accessible here.  

A complete guide detailing 2023 vs 2011 UCC form acceptance policies by state is available here
