California to Launch Enhanced bizfile Online Portal System - Delays Expected

The California Secretary of State is launching an enhanced bizfile Online portal, to include Business Entities, on March 29, 2022.   Please take note that in preparation of the launch, the State is taking some of their online filing applications offline temporarily which will result in delays of processing orders.  
  • Beginning March 25th, the State will suspend UCC electronic filing and other online services, including the ability to request business entity documents, until the launch of their new system on March 29th.
  • Any business entity filings, which are submitted via counter service to the Secretary of State's office from March 23rd thru March 28th, will be held by the State and processed once the new system has been launched.
  Unisearch staff are prepared to handle any California service requests received and will be in communication with you regarding your order. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your service representative or contact our California team at
