Q: How are some of the ways I can get information about company doing business in Utah other than just a directory listing?
by al
A: There are two basic approaches when looking for recorded information about a company doing business in Utah. After typing in Utah public records or Utah business records using search engines, you will probably look over the organic listing since they will seem to offer the best value and more likely to have free sources online. If you're doing a search using Google you will see a lot of the same listing, usually sites that rank high in their algorithms and other search engines will have a variety of what they feel is the most relevant with public and private sources. Many private sources are not aiming to profit from visitors using free tools on their sites and therefore you can be better served than a public agency. Public agencies can also have fees as budget restraints are shifting many of the costs to the people using the sources directly. Fees by agencies are generally low and is aimed at covering some of the costs incurred with record keeping. There are private sources that will provide information about a particular entity and it is essential to check the coverage of what they look at and from where. Browsing online looking for information by yourself is more challenging than simply looking at coverage, you will need to find good sources, know where and how to obtain a particular company's information. The Division of Corporations offers the public a free search of entities doing business in Utah. You can conduct a search based on the business name, number. executive name or search hints. You can see how to search for a certificate of existence, locate filed paperwork, see the management staff of a company and find executives. Once you have entered the required information, usually just the entity name will be enough, you will see the status, type and the city where the company is doing business. If you still need more information, the state also offers a details page listing address, name and location of registered agent, date of registration and more. Do not skip the pages without at least browsing at it. The details will tell you where the business originated from and furthermore on the same page you will notice date of initial registration. This can tell you how long the company has been in business. When doing the search by yourself, you will need to use other sources in various sites across the web. The Utah Department of Commerce offers visitors to its site UCC searches, also know as Uniform Commercial Code filings. This is also a free search and provides the anyone access to its UCC filings by organization name, individual's name, filing number and debtor or organization number. You will be able to view the debtor's information and address which can be used to better verify the intended company, secured party information, dates, filing status, history and other details about collateral description and more. You can search further about a company by looking up court records for litigation involving the entity you will be doing business with. The Utah state courts similar to many other state courts offers access to court records of civil filings throughout its system. This is where you will need to pay some reasonable fees in obtaining public information provided by the state. When looking for information about an entity versus an individual or private party, the data will be more available of the company due to privacy issues affecting persons more than companies. The search however can be easily conducted from your computer and the response time is relatively fast. More current records such as weekly reports and calendars are free and instant but may not go far back enough. You may also have to access archived information for cases that could have been filed previous to the time span covered by the court's services.

That's where you can get all the detail of the property you are looking into. There may be a charge/fee for retrieving or copying or providing the information.
