Lower filing fees for some businesses go into effect
Starting Monday, Secretary of State Scott Gessler will lower some business filing fees.
Though the fee changes are small, Gessler said he wants to keep the state’s business fees among the lowest in the nation.
“As the gateway for Colorado businesses, we want to make a strong first impression,” Gessler said. “My office is lowering costs and improving online functionality, so businesses can focus on jobs, not government fees.”
Filing fees for a domestic nonprofit organization will go from $50 to $20, while trademark registrations will move from $50 to $30. The $25 fee to reinstate a domestic nonprofit, a limited liability corporation and a domestic for-profit company drops to $20.
The Secretary of State’s Office is almost entirely funded through fees, but Gessler said it can absorb the reduction.
