Start: 3:00 pm
End: 4:30 pm
Event Days: 05/09/2013 - 05/09/2013

The last major revision to UCC Article 9 occurred more than a decade ago. At long last, the Uniform Law Commission has recommended new changes to UCC Article 9 that become effective July 1, 2013. Most of the changes relate to properly completing and filing UCC financing statements, including a change in the required information listed on the financing statement. There are also new procedures for determining the proper legal name of a debtor and the security interest in after-acquired property when the debtor moves to another state. This webinar will cover the Article 9 changes and thoroughly explain how to complete each section of the new UCC-1 financing statement together with the proper filing requirements. Although it is anticipated that every state will adopt the new UCC changes by July 1, New York has not as of this document's publication.
