Why do I need a Utah registered agent?

The registered agent requirement is a legal requirement for entities doing business in Utah. The goal is for every corporation, LLC, etc. in Utah to have an address where the business entity can be legally served with a lawsuit. It also provides the state with a reliable address for official notices. If you do not list a Utah registered agent, the Secretary of State will reject your filing.

Registered agent service by Northwest Registered Agent for $125 a year. We specialize in the Northwest, and help many people from Utah do business in other Northwest states, and many people from surrounding states such as Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon get set up to work in Utah correctly.

We are a Utah commercial registered agent.

If you’re going to file in Utah, you can do everything at once online. You will need to list your UT registered agent name, address, and federal tax id number.  Filing online is a painful process. If you file by paper, you can just fax the filing to the Utah Division of Corporations. We do not need to sign your filing to show acceptance of the appointment as registered agent. You can then file the registration with the Department of Revenue and taxation later. The online process forces you to register with the UT Dept. of Revenue at the same time, which many people may not be ready to do.

Your Utah registered agent does not sign the filings anymore. No signatures need to be original. Normal filings take about 2 weeks to get processed by the state. The state has a 24-48 hour expedite service for $75. If you file everything online it automatically expedites everything for you for free as well, but the online process will frustrate you and you probably won’t have all the information you need to do it all in one sitting.

All filings cost $70. Foreign entities need a certificate of good standing from your home state dated within 60 days. This does not have to be an original.
