What is a Puerto Rico Registered Agent?
A Puerto Rico registered agent is appointed by a Puerto Rico corporation or LLC to accept service of process (legal notice of a lawsuit), official notifications and other business mail on behalf of the company. These documents are accepted by the Puerto Rico registered agent and then forwarded to the corporation or LLC in a timely manner.
A Puerto Rico registered agent is required by law for every business entity in Puerto Rico. A registered agent serves as a guaranteed way for the PR courts and government agencies to contact a business.
Puerto Rico Registered Agent Requirements
The Puerto Rico General Corporation’s Act Section 3.01 defines the requirements for registered agents:
- Must be residents or judicial persons (business entities)
- Must have a registered office with a physical address in Puerto Rico
- Must maintain regular business hours
- Must forward all documents accepted on clients’ behalf to clients in a timely manner
It should be noted that a post office box does not meet the statutory requirement laid out in the GCA Section 3.01. A physical address is required for all Puerto Rico registered agents.

In Puerto Rico, there are three possible change agent amendments:

- Resident Agent Resignation With Successor
- Resident Agent Resignation Without Successor
If you are letting go of one agent to appoint another, then select Change Resident Agent.
If your agent resigned, then you must select one of the other two options. A registered agent may have already appointed a successor, in which case you simply need to acknowledge the change by filing the amendment.
If your agent resigned and did not appoint a successor, then you need to file the “Without Successor” amendment, and you will have 30 days to appoint a new registered agent.
Why a Puerto Rico Registered Agent is Important

Unreliable registered agents can severely damage your business. Missed compliance reminders can lead to a loss of your right to do business in Puerto Rico.
