56a-105.Execution, filing and recording of statements. (a) A statement may be filed in the office of the secretary of state. A certified copy of a statement that is filed in an office in another state may be filed in the office of the secretary of state. Any statement may be filed by telefacsimile communication if the telefacsimile communication is accompanied with the appropriate fee and meets statutory requirements it shall be effective upon its filing date. Each filing has the effect provided in this act with respect to partnership property located in or transactions that occur in this state.

(b) A certified copy of a statement that has been filed in the office of the secretary of state and recorded in the office for recording transfers of real property has the effect provided for recorded statements in this act. A recorded statement that is not a certified copy of a statement filed in the office of the secretary of state does not have the effect provided for recorded statements in this act.

(c) A statement filed by a partnership must be executed by at least two partners. Other statements must be executed by a partner or other person authorized by this act. An individual who executes a statement as, or on behalf of, a partner or other person named as a partner in a statement shall personally declare under penalty of perjury that the contents of the statement are accurate.

(e) A person who files a statement pursuant to this section shall promptly send a copy of the statement to every nonfiling partner and to any other person named as a partner in the statement. Failure to send a copy of a statement to a partner or other person does not limit the effectiveness of the statement as to a person not a partner.

(f) The secretary of state may collect a fee for filing or providing a certified copy of a statement. The officer responsible for recording transfers of real property may collect a fee for recording a statement.

(g) The secretary of state shall set by rules and regulations any fees provided by this act.

The fee must be paid prior to acceptance of a telefacsimile communication under this section. The telefacsimile communication fee shall be deposited into the information and copy fee fund. As used in this section, telefacsimile communication means the use of electronic equipment to send or transfer a document.

(i) Any signature on documents authorized to be filed with the secretary of state under the provisions of this chapter may be a facsimile, a conformed signature or an electronically transmitted signature.
