ALABAMA SECRETARY OF STATE CHANGE OF REGISTERED AGENT REQUIREMENTS AND OPTIONS

What you need to change your registered agent in Alabama:

  • $25 change of agent fee
  • Change of Registered Agent or Registered Office form (Alabama Secretary of State site)
  • Signature of new agent (doesn’t need to be an original)
  • Alabama Entity ID Number
  • Additional fees may be required ($3 fee for an acknowledgement copy of the document; $100 for an expedited filing)

How to change your Alabama registered agent:

  1. Find your Alabama Entity ID Number
    This number was assigned to your business when you formed your AL limited liability company or corporation in Alabama. It’s a six-digit number and you can find it on the Secretary of State’s website by doing a name search of your company. Copy the number down and keep it handy.
  2. Complete the Change of Registered Agent or Registered Office form
    When you’ve chosen your new Alabama registered agent service, this is a very basic form that asks for your entity ID number, your company name and address, your current registered agent’s name and address, and your new Alabama registered agent’s name, address and signature (a copy will suffice). That’s it.
  3. Write the check
    The filing fee is $25. If you want the secretary of state to send you a confirmation once the filing is complete, include an additional $3 and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. It takes the secretary of state up to six months to complete your filing—unless you include an additional $100 to expedite the filing, in which case it will take only three business days.
  4. Send the filing
    You can email, fax, mail, or walk-in the form to the Alabama Secretary of State. You can pay with a credit card if you file by email or fax.
