Combined Corporate Compliance and Registered Agent Tool from CT Corporation Simplifies Business Requirement Practices

NEW YORK, May 18 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to automating their corporate regulatory compliance, licensing and business formation processes, small- and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) have been caught in the netherworld between entrepreneur-focused Web sites and full-scale, enterprise-class software packages aimed at larger corporations.  With today's introduction of CTProComply, SMB decision-makers now have a tailored solution that gives them the ease of use of a Web-based solution with the breadth of functionality to handle the evolving needs of their growing business.

Created by CT Corporation, part of CT, a Wolters Kluwer business, and the leading provider of registered agent services, CTProComply is an online service, giving customers the ability to easily control all aspects of content and the processes involved in the documentation of and scheduling of business filings in one simple, collaborative work environment.

With the annual cost of complying with federal regulations totaling $1.1 trillion, small companies pay a disproportionate percentage – almost 45 percent more per employee in annual regulatory compliance costs than larger companies, according to the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.

Before CTProComply, SMB decision-makers had two basic options:  They could use existing online tools that cater to entrepreneurs or invest in a robust solution aimed at large enterprises.  When a business has outgrown the startup stage or has emerged into a steady growth mid-sized company, but does not yet require the complexity of a solution for a large enterprise, they can now turn to CTProComply. This online compliance solution is specifically built for the SMB market, providing consolidated tracking, filing and maintenance services designed to help these businesses remain in good standing with multiple regulatory agencies and avoid fines associated with lapses in compliance.

"Our goal with CTProComply is to give smaller businesses the same peace of mind that large corporations have found in working with CT Corporation for over a century," said Diane Brown, executive vice president and general manager of CT Corporation. "Customers can reduce the time spent managing their company's compliance, gain confidence that their business is in full compliance with regulatory obligations, get affordable statutory representation without bargaining and potentially save money by minimizing the fines that previously resulted from missed compliance deadlines."
