Connecticut Offshore Office License Restriction

Starting October 1, Connecticut Prohibits Collection from Offshore Offices!

On October 1, 2018, a new Connecticut law will prohibit licensed collection agencies from contacting Connecticut consumers from offshore and nearshore offices.  The new law requires that "[a]ny activity subject to licensure . . . shall be conducted from an office located in a state."  The law defines a state to include any state, district, or territory of the United States, but not foreign jurisdictions.  In other words, starting October 1, licensed collection agencies may not contact Connecticut consumers from foreign offices.
