Arizona Registered Agent

Do Business the Right Way

An Arizona statutory agent (also called a registered agent) is a business entity or individual residing in Arizona that maintains a physical address in the state and accepts service of process and other legal documents on behalf of businesses. All documents received by an Arizona statutory agent must be forwarded to the proper client in a timely manner. The appointment of an Arizona statutory agent ensures that the state has a reliable means of contacting any entity conducting business in Arizona.

Arizona Registered Agent FAQs

Why Do I Need An Arizona Registered Agent?

  • All businesses registered with the state must appoint a statutory agent.
  • The Arizona Corporations Commission and the Secretary of State will reject your filing if you do not appoint one.
  • So that the government and general public have a reliable way to contact your Arizona business with legal notices and other types of important mail.

Where Is Northwest’s Registered Office In Arizona?

Oro Valley, AZ. This is where receive, scan and upload your documents.

Can I Use Your Arizona Registered Office Address For Everything On My Business Filing?

Yes. We’re the only national registered agent service that allows our clients to list our address for everything when you’re doing a filing to keep you private address off public records.

Can I Have My Business’s Mail Delivered To Your Arizona Office?

We don’t want ALL of your business mail. It’s not what we do. And it wouldn’t serve you well. You wouldn’t have unique address or suite number. Any mail we receive on your behalf would come to to Northwest Registered Agent, care of you.

But we understand that businesses and clients sometimes reach out to you through your registered agent. Through us. That’s why we give you 5 FREE scans of regular business mail a year. You can request any additional documents to be forwarded at a per document rate of $15.

Should I Hire A Registered Agent Before Or After I Start My Business In Arizona?

You hire us first and then do your business registration filing with the ACC. The state won’t allow you to form an Arizona LLC or corporation without an Arizona statutory agent. Plus, you’ll find all the forms and instructions you need to complete your filing instantly after you sign up.

How Do Arizona Registered Agents Get Served?

Service on your registered agent is legal proof that you were notified. Regardless of whether you actually receive the documents your Arizona registered agent signs for, once they accept the documents, you’ve been notified. This is a serious responsibility that we do not take lightly. This is how it works:

  • A process server, the county sheriff, or any third party will walk into our office and hand us the documents (service of process), which we sign for.
  • The process server then gives an affidavit (a receipt of service) to the court as confirmation that they “served” us.

How Do I Find An Arizona Company's Registered Agent?

To find a company’s registered agent, you can do an Arizona business name search.

  • Type in the name of the company you’re searching for.
  • In the results, you’ll find the registered agent’s name and registered office street address.

If you want to legally notify a business through their Arizona registered agent service, just send a certified letter directly to the registered agent name and registered office address.

  • Domestic corporations and LLCs, as well as foreign corporations, are required to publish a notice of their formation or registration in a local newspaper for three consecutive weeks. Newspaper fees vary widely. Domestic LLCs in the counties of Maricopa and Pima are automatically published by the county at no cost.
  • Domestic corporations cost $60 to form. Foreign corporations cost $175 to register. Corporations must file an annual report each year, which comes with a $45 price tag.
  • Domestic LLCs cost $50 to form. Foreign LLCs cost $150 to register. Unlike corporations, LLCs aren’t required to file annual reports.

At Northwest, we can also form your LLC or form your corporation in Arizona for $100 plus state fees. As part of our commitment to Privacy by Default®, we put our business address on your filings to better protect your privacy. And you always have the support of our Corporate Guides®.
