Delaware Offers Preclearance Review of Corporate Documents to Reduce Rejections

November 14, 2019 Corporate, Due Diligence, Tips

The State of Delaware offers Preclearance Review of Corporate Documents to assist filers through the corporate filing process and reduce the number of filings that do not meet required criteria. Various preclearance corporate filing services are offered and their official review procedures are a convenient way to avoid potential processing errors. This service assures that you have accurately drafted your corporate document before formally submitting it for filing.

Preclearance corporate filing services have various uses, particularly for documents that need to be processed as a rush. Preclearance is often utilized for mergers, conversions and other more intricate actions, and preclearance is required for a 30 minute priority corporate filing.

For documents submitted for preclearance, a corporate filing expert at the state will:

  • Carefully review the drafted document against the requirements of the Delaware General Corporation Law and the Delaware Division of Corporation Guidelines
  • Calculate the minimum filing fee for the document and franchise tax requirements
  • Prepare a letter identifying any deficiencies or discrepancies

Delaware offers preclearance review in three tiers of service: routine, 24-hour, and 2-hour.
