As the State Registration Forms and paperwork are being prepared, you will be invoiced separately for the Actual State Registration Fees charged by each State. These fees currently add up to roughly $11,000 for one Product in 51 States. Actual State Registration Fee payments are held in a separate Escrow Account. The Service Center may not issue checks or submit/mail the completed paperwork package to the States until the fees have been deposited into this Escrow Account.

The invoice for the ATSSC Service Charge for maintaining State Registrations will normally accompany the State Registration Fees invoice. The Service Center has determined the costs of the current registration/renewal direct expenses such as copy services, shipping charges, and office charge, etc. The direct expenses will be included on this invoice. The expenses will range from $750-$1500.

There is a 10% Office Charge added to ATSSC Service and ATS Consulting invoices to cover the day to day expenses that are incurred with running our office. We made the decision over eleven years ago that it was counter productive for us to keep track of each individual expense and bill it out to the proper client. Logging phone calls, faxes, emails, copies, postage, etc. and then sorting the charges to each client was very time consuming. That time is billed to the client! That meant unproductive clerical time was being invoiced out as Regulatory Consulting Services. The Office Charge solves this problem.
