DCCA extends fee cuts for filing various business forms
The Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs is extending its fee cuts for securities and franchise filing fees and for trade name, trade mark and service mark filings.
The fee cuts will result in an estimated total savings of more than $1.7 million dollars for businesses, according to the DCCA.
The filing fees are discounted by 50 percent from the statutory fees for applications and renewals for securities dealers and their salespeople, investment advisers and their representatives, the initial notice filing and renewal fees for investment company securities, and the application, amendment and renewal fees for franchise filings, as well as fees for trade name, trademark and service mark filings.
The fees will automatically readjust to the old rates on Jan. 1, 2011.
