Colorado Secretary of State’s Office Adds Support to Small Businesses with Text Notifications for Business Filings

Denver, August 26, 2021 - The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office is introducing a new service for businesses that includes text message reminders for filings. The new text message initiative is part of an extensive improvement process to the agency’s business systems designed to cut red tape and improve service to Colorado businesses.

“As part of our ongoing mission to further modernize our business systems, these new text message capabilities offer another convenient tool for busy business owners,” said Secretary of State Jena Griswold.  “By cutting red tape, we’re streamlining the process to start a business, enabling entrepreneurs to focus on the real work running their businesses which are the backbone of the Colorado economy.”

Colorado businesses that are starting a new LLC will now have the option of adding a cell phone number in addition to the email address they already provide.  Once signed up, users will receive a text message when they first file, subscribe or unsubscribe, and they will receive reminders for annual report deadlines.  While the new text messaging system is currently in place exclusively for newly formed LLCs, it will eventually be expanded to all businesses on file with the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office – furthering the Department’s focus on innovation. 

This April, Secretary Griswold was named one of Government Technology Magazines Top 25 “Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers of 2021” for her embrace of technology.
