Who can be a Registered Agent?

A registered agent can be an individual who resides in New Hampshire or an entity organized or authorized per state law to transact business in New Hampshire.[2] Eligible entities include corporations, limited liability companies, and limited liability partnerships. A corporation’s owner, manager, or employee can be a registered agent for that corporation.

The agent receives service of process, notices, and demands required or permitted by law to be served on the corporation.[3] As a result, the agent must have a street address. The corporation’s registered office must be identical to the registered agent’s address.

Can I be a Registered Agent?

Yes, if you are a person or corporation in New Hampshire.

The simplest way to designate a registered agent is to include the agent’s name and information in documents filed to register an entity. These forms can be filed online through NH QuickStart, an online platform for business registration with the Corporation Division of the Secretary of State’s Office.

Alternatively, paper forms can be filed to register an entity. Forms can be printed, signed, and mailed, together with payment for the filing fee, to State House, Room 204, 107 North Main Street, Concord, N.H. 03301. Forms should be completed in black ink and checks made payable to “State of New Hampshire.”

All of the below forms cost $100 to file except the nonprofit forms, which cost $25.[4]

Changing a Registered Agent

A corporation may change its registered agent by filing a Statement of Change (Form 10) with the Secretary of State.[5] To file this form, there is a $15 fee.

Resigning as a Registered Agent

A registered agent can resign by signing and delivering a Statement of Resignation to the Secretary of State. While there is no standard form, the agent should create a document declaring their resignation, sign it, and file both the original and a photocopy. A $15 filing fee should also be enclosed.

The Secretary of State’s office will mail the copy to the corporation the agent represented. The resignation is effective 31 days after this form is filed.[6]
