New York Registered Agent Services


Under New York law, business entities formed or registered with the Secretary of State may designate a registered agent for service of process. The entity may designate an individual or a corporation or LLC.

What New York Registered Agents Do:

Every New York registered agent must maintain a physical address in New York. This is where the registered agent receives service of process and official documents on behalf of the business.

The New York registered agent is the point of contact between the state and your business. When you have been sued or the state sends you some legal notice, the registered agent is responsible for making sure you get that information, fast. Registered Agents Inc. takes this responsibility as your New York registered agent seriously. Whether you are obtaining our New York registered agent services for your business or for your clients, each of our accounts is handled with equal amounts of regard, security, and care.

Why New York Registered Agents are Important:

Having a registered agent with a physical address is key to doing business in any given state. The state expects that when you do business there, you will have a reliable address where someone can deliver a lawsuit, tax notification, or other highly sensitive mail for your New York LLC or corporation. Having an New York registered agent you trust also benefits you. If your New York registered agent is incompetent or inefficient at delivering notifications to you, lawsuits can proceed and default judgments could be made against your business without you ever knowing it. That’s why retaining the services of a highly qualified registered agent like Registered Agents Inc. really matters.

Registered Agents Inc. has also created a service that is more than forwarding documents—we can make managing your business easier.

For every New York client, we provide:

  • NY Biennial Statement Reminders
  • A Reduction in Paperwork
  • Easy Access to State Forms

New York Registered Agent Requirements

To become an New York registered agent you must be either an individual who is a resident of New York or a corporation or LLC that is registered to do business in New York. An New York registered agent must also maintain a street address (registered office) in New York, where you can accept and sign for service of process and official mail during normal business hours. A mail box or phone service is not sufficient. The registered agent is required to physically be at an address New York, ready to accept notifications and service of process throughout the working day.

In New York, you can always simply designate the Secretary of State as your agent for service of process. In that case, when the state is served on your behalf, they forward the documents to the address you provide. We really recommend hiring a professional, though. Registered Agents Inc. never wastes time by forwarding documents via regular mail. We scan and upload your service of process immediately upon receipt.
