New: Corporation Annual Reports and Other Documents Now
Available online at DFI Website
(Madison) The Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) has
announced that the public can now order copies of some corporation documents
through the agency's website that previously were available only at the
DFI office or by mail. Documents that can now be ordered online include:
-- A copy of a single-year Annual Report
--A copy of a charter document
--A copy of an Articles of Incorporation
DFI Secretary Lorrie Keating Heinemann said, "For customers who
have become accustomed to shopping online, using the Department of Financial
Institutions’ new Online Order System will be a familiar experience
as the agency has adapted online shopping techniques to provide better
and faster services to its customers."
Previously, the agency has accommodated visitors to its website who wished
to create and quickly file many required business documents over the web.
These included limited liability company filings, annual reports, or certificates
of status. However, some services were still available only by mail after
filling out a paper form, writing a check, and mailing off the request,
or by making the request in person at DFI's Madison office.
Customers using the new system can now select from a list of available
documents and services, pay online, select a delivery method, ship to
any designated location, expedite a service if time is critical, and receive
email confirmation from the department on what has been ordered and when
it was shipped. Frequent users of DFI’s Online Order System will
also be able to establish accounts that will allow them to automatically
fill in customer names, email addresses, delivery preferences, and other
data to save time.
The department will be continuing to add new service options to its Online
Order System. In addition, the agency will be working to develop systems
to deliver complex documents electronically to the customer. The new Online
Order System can be found on the DFI website at www.wdfi.org
under the "QuickFile" banner.
