Who can be a Registered Agent?

A registered agent may be either a person residing in New Mexico or a domestic or foreign corporation authorized to transact business in New Mexico. The agent must have a street address, as the agent’s address also becomes the business office address of the corporation the agent represents.[3][4]

Designating a Registered Agent

The most common way for a corporation to designate a registered agent is to include the agent’s name and address in its formation document.

In New Mexico, a limited liability company can be formed online, but forms for corporations and partnerships must be completed and submitted by mail or in person. Select the appropriate form from the list below. Complete it and send it, along with the filing fee, to New Mexico Secretary of State Business Services Division 325 Don Gaspar, Suite 300 Santa Fe, NM 87501.

Checks should be made payable to New Mexico Secretary of State.

Changing a Registered Agent

To change its registered agent, a corporation can submit a statement to the Secretary of State indicating the corporation’s name, the name of its current agent, and the name of its successor agent. The statement must also confirm that the agent accepts the appointment and that the agent’s address is the same as the company’s address.[5]

Resigning as a Registered Agent

A registered agent can resign by delivering written notice to the Secretary of State. A duplicate copy of the notice should be mailed to the corporation the agent represents at its primary place of business. The resignation becomes effective 30 days after the Secretary of State receives the notice or when a successor agent is appointed, whichever comes first.[6]
