What Do Kentucky Registered Agents Do?

Kentucky Registered Agents accept documents on behalf of your business in Kentucky, get them to you and keep normal business hours.

However, the right registered agent service can do much more. At Northwest, we go above and beyond the minimum to ensure top speed, security, privacy and support.

How Do I Change My Kentucky Registered Agent?

  • File a Statement of Change of Principal Office Address, Registered Agent and/or Registered Office Address form with the Kentucky Secretary of State. Or, you can also change agents online on the secretary of state’s website. The fee to change agents is $10 (add another $10 if you’re also changing your principal business address).
  • If you place an order with us, the form will be available instantly.
  • It’s a simple process, but for more info, see our change your Kentucky registered agent page.

Kentucky Registered Agent FAQs

Why Do I Need A Kentucky Registered Agent?

  • State law requires all legitimate, registered businesses to appoint one.
  • The secretary of state will reject your business filing if you don’t appoint a registered agent.
  • A registered agent requirement gives the public and the state a reliable way to contact your business.

Where Is Northwest’s Registered Office In Kentucky?

We accept and scan all of our Kentucky clients’ documents on-site at our registered office in Richmond, KY.

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

Definitely! 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 your private address off public records.

Can I Have My Business’s Mail Delivered To Your Kentucky 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.

Do I Hire A Registered Agent Before Or After I Start My Business In Kentucky?

You should hire us first and then form your LLC or corporation because the Kentucky Secretary of State will reject your business registration filing if you don’t. You’ll find all the forms and instructions you need to complete your filing instantly after you place an order.

How Do Kentucky Registered Agents Get Served?

Serving a registered agent is legal proof that you were notified. Regardless of whether you receive the documents your Kentucky registered agent signs for on your business’ behalf, 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.

Note: If you’ve hired us, long before the server hands in their affidavit to the court, you’ve received your documents because we scanned them to your online account within minute of having been served.

How Do I Search For A Kentucky Registered Agent?

If you want to legally notify a business through their Kentucky registered agent service, just send a certified letter directly to the registered agent name and registered office address. To find a company’s Kentucky registered agent:

  • You can do a Kentucky 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.
