The Ongoing Death of Paper - Delaware UCC Filings

Bad news for the paper industry and for those of you still filing your Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) financing statements by paper - the State of Delaware is no longer accepting paper UCC filings. Effective December 1, 2015, a person wishing to make a UCC filing with the Delaware Secretary of State's office must now either file electronically or deliver its paper UCC filing to an "Authorized UCC Filer" who in turn will file the UCC electronically.

For those of you still wedded to pen and paper, you can access a list of Delaware Authorized UCC Filers here.

If you are headed to the beach, you might consider taking along the Delaware Secretary of State's complete administrative rules which are available here.

TECH Talk - TEXAS Style Radio Show Appearance

Today I had the pleasure of being a guest on TECH Talk - TEXAS Style radio podcast sponsored by TECH Fort Worth and hosted by Sarah Zink.  Today's topic was Real Estate Leasing Essentials for your Small Business.  We discussed some of the key issues small business's should be aware of before entering into a commercial real estate lease agreement.

This was my third time as a guest on this program.  On my first appearance we discussed "What to Know When Selling Your Business."  My second appearance covered similar territory with "10 Things You Should Know Before Selling Your Business."

All three radio podcasts are available for your listening pleasure at TECH Talk - TEXAS Style's homepage on Blog Talk Radio's website here.
