Online Filings – Limited Offering Exemption Notice (LOEN)
The new Self-Service DOCQNET Portal allows securities permit applications and exemption notices filed pursuant to the Corporate Securities Law of 1968 and franchise applications and exemption notices filed under the Franchise Investment Law to be filed and paid for online.
The Self-Service DOCQNET portal replaces the former Limited Offering Exemption Notice (LOEN) system with improved functionality and increased security. The new system requires a LOEN filer to register as a single filing organization to access the portal. If you are an issuer representative with multiple organizations, you will need to have a separate account for each organization.
To register for the portal, please visit our DOCQNET page. Upon receipt of your request, the Department will review and approve your registration request within five business days. We will send a confirmation to the email you provide. Once you have access to the Self-Service DOCQNET portal, you will be able to file your Limited Offering Exemption Notice under Corporations Code Section 25102(f) or Rule 260.103, and pay the associated filing fees, online. (This filing is required for persons claiming the exemption from securities qualification for certain limited securities offerings.)
LOEN filers (or anyone submitting payment through the portal) will need to enter their credit card information at the time of payment submission. Please note that we no longer store credit card information. We recognize that LOEN is a high volume transaction and that the newly designed portal provides more security.
The Self-Service DOCQNET portal accepts the following credit card secured transactions for securities and franchise filings:
- Discover Card
