  • Where can I find various information sources about companies doing business in Utah?
    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 seem to offer the best value and are more likely to have accessible online sources. If you're searching using Google, you will see many duplicate listings; 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; therefore, you can be better served than a public agency. Public agencies can also have fees as budget restraints shift costs directly to those using the sources. PricAgency fees are generally low and aim to cover some expenses incurred for record keeping. Private sources 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 and looking for information yourself is more challenging than looking at range; you will need to find good sources and know where and how to obtain a particular company's data. The Division of Corporations offers the public a free search of business entities in Utah. You can conduct a search based on the business name and 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 city where the company is doing business. If you still need more information, the state also offers a details page listing address, name, location of the registered agent, date of registration, and more. Please do not skip the pages without at least browsing them. The details will tell you where the business originated from and the same courier, and you will notice the initial registration date. This can tell you how long the company has been in business. When searching yourself, you will need to use other sources across the web. The Utah Department of Commerce offers visitors to its site UCC searches, also known as Uniform Commercial Code filings. This is also a free search and provides 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 verify better the intended company, secured party information, dates, filing status, history, and other details about collateral description. You can search further about a company by looking up court records for litigation involving the entity you will be doing business with. Like many other state courts, the Utah state courts offer access to civil filings and court records throughout its system. This is where you will need to pay some reasonable fees to obtain public information the state provides. When looking for information about an entity versus an individual or private party, the data will be more available to the company due to privacy issues affecting persons more than companies. The search can be efficiently 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 previously before being covered by the court's services.
