Alaska is not a Franchise Registration State.
The State of Alaska is not a franchise registration state. This means that prior to offering or selling a franchise in Alaska you do not need to register your Franchise Disclosure Document (“FDD”). Although Alaska has enacted business opportunity laws, franchisors that are in compliance with the Federal Franchise Laws are exempt from Alaska’s business opportunity disclosure requirements.
Alaska does not require FDD registration but if you are not a franchisor and not otherwise in compliance with the franchise laws and FDD disclosures, you must comply with Alaska’s Business Opportunity Laws. As a franchisor you must ensure that your FDD is current, that you are in compliance with the FDD disclosure requirements under the franchise laws and that you properly disclose your prospective Alaska franchisee.

Alaska has not enacted franchise laws and does not require FDD registration. Accordingly, Alaska has not designated regulator to oversee franchise sales in Alaska. However, Alaska has enacted Business Opportunity Laws and that are administered and regulated by the Alaska Department of Law.
If your franchise is in compliance with the Federal Franchise Laws, then you will be exempt from the Alaska Business Opportunity Act and you will not be required to register as a business opportunity. Although the definition of a “business opportunity” under the Alaska Business Opportunity Act is broad, Section 45.66.220 specifically exempts franchises.
