Elections and Government Services Administrative Rules of Montana Business Services Notary and Certification Records and Information Management

Flourishing businesses are critical to the economic vitality and stability of Montana. The Business Services Division is committed to working in close partnership with entrepreneurs who want to start, expand, or close a business in the state, as well as with out-of-state businesses seeking to open offices within Montana.

The division is also responsible for filing commercial and agricultural liens, including those filed under the Uniform Commercial Code and the Federal Food Security Act. Information on current filings is maintained on the UCC Search database and is available to registered users online.

Under the Federal Food Security Act, buyers of farm products must register with the Business Services Division to ensure that they have clear title protection for the farm products they purchase.

If you have any suggestions as to how we can improve our services, please let us know. Making Montana a place where business can grow and thrive is a top priority for Secretary of State Linda McCulloch. We look forward to working with you in your endeavor to make your business succeed.
