New York Finalizes its Commercial Financing Disclosure Rules
That’s all folks. New York State’s Department of Financial Services has finalized its rules on commercial financing disclosures. The Fifty-three page rulebook dictates what covered parties will be required to do.
“The New York State Department of Financial Services received 21 comments on proposed revised rule 23 NYCRR 600,” a note accompanying the finalized rules said. “The Department has considered every comment received and has made several revisions…”
Those expecting years of possible back-and-forth commentary like what happened in California may be surprised to find that this is the final version. The effective date of the rule is the date the notice is published in the State Register, but compliance with the rules themselves is slated to take effect six months from that date (please consult with attorney to confirm).
“Clear and easy-to-compare disclosures are paramount as entrepreneurs and small businesses evaluate financing,” said DFS Superintendent Adrienne A. Harris in an official press release.Last modified: March 28, 2023
