Iowa Registered Agent Service

Info your IA registered agent should help you know and understand:

  • Domestic Iowa corporations and LLCs cost $50 to file. You appoint an IA registered agent on your articles of incorporation.
  • Your registered agent does not need to sign your filing to be appointed as a registered agent in Iowa.
  • To qualify an out of state corporation or LLC in Iowa, it will cost $100, and you will need a current certificate of good standing from your home state dated within 90 days. It does not have to be an original certificate of good standing. It is important to name a responsible agent for your correspondence with the Iowa Secretary of State.
  • You can file any Iowa entity (including IA nonprofits) with a Visa or Master Card by fax.

The Iowa Secretary of State is quick on completing its filings. It will take 1-2 days for paperwork to get processed.

Annual reports will get mailed to your registered agent office in Iowa. They cost $30 if fax filing and $45 if you mail them in. They are actually biennial reports. Reports for corporations in Iowa are due on even years by April 1st. All other entities have reports due on odd years by April 1st as well. The Iowa biennial reports can be confusing to remember. One of the nice things our registered agent service clients have is always being able to log into their accounts to see when their next biennial report is due.
