What Do New Mexico Registered Agents Do?

According to New Mexico Statute 53-11-11, at minimum, New Mexico registered agents accept legal documents (service of process) and official mail on behalf of your business at a physical address (no P.O. boxes) in the state. This location is called a registered office. 

In other words, your registered agent’s address acts as the official place where any service of process and official mail for your New Mexico LLCNew Mexico corporation or New Mexico nonprofit will be sent.

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 New Mexico Registered Agent?

There are two ways to change your registered agent in New Mexico.

  1. Hire us and we’ll complete the change of agent form for you for free.
  2. Do it yourself and file a Statement of Change of Registered Agent form with the New Mexico Secretary of State. It costs $25 for corporations and $20 for LLCs.

New Mexico Registered Agent FAQs

Why Do I Need A New Mexico 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.

Can I Be My Own Registered Agent In New Mexico?

Yes, you can be your own registered agent in New Mexico. However, after considering the registered agent requirements most business owners elect to hire a registered agent service instead. Why? Well although being your own registered agent will cost you $0, a New Mexico registered agent’s name and address becomes part of the public record.  Additionally, the registered agent is required to be available to accept service of process during normal business hours 5 days a week.

Where Is Northwest’s Registered Office In New Mexico?

We accept and scan all of our New Mexico clients’ documents on-site at our registered office in Santa Fe, NM.

Can I Use Your New Mexico 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 New Mexico 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 New Mexico?

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

How Do New Mexico 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 New Mexico 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.

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

How Do I Find A New Mexico Company's Registered Agent?

You can do a New Mexico 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 New Mexico registered agent service, just send a certified letter directly to the registered agent name and registered office address.

How Do I Resign From Being A Registered Agent In New Mexico?

In New Mexico, to resign as a registered agent, you need to submit two copies of a written notice of resignation of registered agent and a Document Delivery Instruction Form to the New Mexico Secretary of State. For a more detailed walkthrough, you can refer to our guide on how to resign as a registered agent in New Mexico.

  • A domestic New Mexico LLC costs $50 to file, and does not have annual reports.
  • A foreign corporation costs $200 minimum up to $1,000 maximum for normal processing (filing fee is determined by the number of authorized shares of the corporation and the estimated dollar amounts provided in item #10 of the application).
  • A foreign LLC costs $100 to file.

If you want to do your own filing and hire us your registered agent, contact us and we’ll send you a signed consent form ASAP.
