When preparing a UCC3 Change Statement, it is critical to input the correct original filing number on the form to ensure the change is made in the UCC index. Many filing offices have strict rules about the formatting of file numbers, so be sure to list the filing number exactly as it is shown on the filed UCC1 including any spaces, hyphens, preceding letters, etc.
One area of common confusion for filers involves UCC records where the original UCC1 has already been amended or continued. Keep in mind, even if a previous Change Statement is on record for the original UCC1 Financing Statement , the appropriate filing number to put on a subsequent filing is the number that the filing office assigned to the original UCC1; a UCC3 should never list the number for another UCC3.
