For those of you who have never used the preclearance corporate filing service in Delaware, it really is a handy way to make sure you have drafted your document correctly. This service is particularly useful for documents that need to be processed as a rush, as you can be assured you will not encounter any problems or rejections once submitted.
The state offers three tiers of preclearance service: routine, 24-hour, and 2-hour.
The filing experts at the SOS will go over the document with a fine-toothed comb looking for any deficiencies or discrepancies. The state will return your document along with a detailed letter describing whether your document would be acceptable for filing.
Even better, the state is expanding their preclearance service to include annual reports. As of May 1, 2010, you will be able to submit any required annual reports with your preclearance document and receive filing officer notes on that as well. You can always contact your corporate service provider if you need any help in utilizing this service.
