When should I file the Colorado Articles of Amendment?
A Colorado LLC files the Articles of Amendment to update the entity’s name.
However, you can’t change your Colorado registered agent or principal business address by filing an amendment. To change your registered agent, you can submit a Statement of Change Changing the Registered Agent Information. To change your business address, you can file a Statement of Change Changing the Principal Office Address.
Both forms require a $10 filing fee. You may also update this information when filing your annual Colorado Periodic Report ($10.) Although this is the most cost effective method, the state only allows periodic reports to be filed two months prior to their due date. If you need to update your registered agent and/or business address before this, you’ll need to submit the appropriate statement of change form.
