Can I file financing statements with large collateral descriptions?

The equivalent of about 20 typewritten pages of collateral description can be filed through UCC Online. Use Window's "copy and paste" feature to import or copy data from another document, and then paste the data into the collateral field. If the data is too long for a UCC1 or UCC3 form, the system will automatically generate enough addendums to accommodate the collateral data, up to 20 pages. These addendums will show as attachments to your filing acknowledgement and in subsequent searches.
