The UCC form also features: – A tab to help the user determine jurisdiction rules – Convenient address book and collateral descriptions – Option to save as “Draft” or to “Submit” – Ability to add Addendums, Additional Party Forms or Attachments
UCC-3 The UCC-3 form has the same functionality as the UCC-1, including: – WYSIWYG format – Address book and Collateral descriptions – Addendum and Additional Party forms – Space for Cover Letter, Reference Number, and State and County Jurisdictions – Option to save as “Draft” or to “Submit” – Option to add attachments
TEMPLATES The templates function allows you to make a general template you can use to create multiple filings that are similar to each other.
