Registered Agent Service In Puerto Rico

When you register your business in Puerto Rico, you need to appoint a registered agent. Puerto Rico registered agents provide the general public and Puerto Rican government a reliable way to send important mail or legal notices to your business in PR. When you hire Northwest, you’ll not only receive the best registered agent service in Puerto Rico, but you’ll also be given an online account to manage all of your business’ state registrations, as we provide service in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.

What you need to know about doing business in Puerto Rico:

You shouldn’t have much trouble forming a Puerto Rico corporation or LLC in Puerto RicoThe Puerto Rico Corporation Act is actually based on Delaware’s corporate law with the intent to make forming a business entity here a simple process. The formation process is similar to any registration in the US.

Puerto Rico legal documents sometimes refer to registered agents as resident agents. There is no difference between the two, aside from the name.

Limited liability companies (LLCs) have a huge maintenance advantage over corporations. Annual reports are much easier to file. Each year corporations and LLCs must file an annual report with the Puerto Rico Department of State. Corporations’ reports, however, must include a financial statement prepared by an independent, certified public accountant in Puerto Rico. In contrast, LLCs simply file a statement of information and pay a $150 filing fee.

If you do have a foreign corporation in Puerto Rico, you will need to have an independent, CPA in Puerto Rico prepare you annual financial statement. The question many people concerns to whether that financial statement must include their entire company’s financials or just those pertaining to business done in Puerto Rico? The report will only concern the business done through the Puerto Rico portion of the corporation.

Can I use your Puerto Rico registered office address for everything on my filing?

Absolutely! We’re the only national registered agent that allows our clients to list our addresses for everything when you’re doing a filing to keep your private addresses off of public record.

Why your life will be better if you hire us:

Notification Icon

Odds are you’ll struggle with your business filing on your own. It’s not personal, but we do these filing every day. When you hire us, we’ll provide filing instructions, tips, order sheets, and the forms you need to register your corporation or LLC in Puerto Rico. You can complete the business filings online.

Documents Icon

This is only the beginning. Each year, you’ll have ongoing reports like the Puerto Rico annual report (due each year by April 15). LLCs in Puerto Rico only need to file a statement with minimal information, but corporations will need to hire an independent accountant to complete their report (it’s intense). Both entities can file these reports online, but beware! Puerto Rico doesn’t send out annual report reminders.

Tools Icon

Free tools. We give you everything you need to register and maintain your Puerto Rico business entity. To make things even easier, you can enter your corporate data once, and use that data to populate all kinds of corporate forms like annual meetings, amendments, and new registrations in additional states. We are not the kind of business that just does the minimum you need to get by. We are always improving our system and looking for new ways to help.

Phone Icon

Just call us! We’ll walk you through the filing process. We’re here to help. The people who answer the phone do this for a living. We’re not reading from a script and you’ll never get a salesperson.
