Franchisors must complete and file an Affidavit of Business Opportunity Exemption with the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General. There is no filing fee due and this is a one-time filing for franchisors, unless the franchisor’s address changes. To prevent potential costly mistakes when filing the Kentucky Affidavit of Business Opportunity Exemption, franchisors should ask for help from an experienced franchise attorney.

What Must be Submitted With the Business Opportunity Exemption?

When filling out the Kentucky Affidavit of Business Opportunity Exemption, a franchisor must submit a copy of its Franchise Disclosure Document and certify that its offering meets the definition of a franchise under 16. C.F.R. Part 436 et seq., and is compliant with other Federal Trade Commission orders or actions relating to franchises.

Once completed, the Kentucky Affidavit of Business Opportunity Exemption should be mailed, along with a copy of the Franchise Disclosure Document, to:

Office of the Attorney General

Consumer Protection Division

1024 Capital Center Drive

Frankfort, KY 40601

Is it Mandatory for Franchisors to Renew their Exemption in Kentucky?

Unlike some other filing states, Kentucky does not require that a franchisor renew its exemption annually; however if a franchisor’s address changes then an update must be filed with the state at no additional charge.
