Wisconsin goes paperless for franchise applications

Laptop with filing cabinetMore and more franchise registration states are offering the option to submit franchise applications either electronically or in hard copy. As of June 30, 2016, Wisconsin franchise filers now find themselves required to e-file all future franchise applications. 

In an effort to avoid excessive mailing costs, the division staff will return mailed checks and cover letters while recycling all other hard copy documents they receive. There is no downside to electronically filing in Wisconsin, as it is instantaneous and immediately effective. 

We will hopefully see additional states following suit as we transition further into the franchise digital age. If you have questions about electronic filing, please contact Greensfelder’s Franchising & Distribution group.
