Registered Agent Service in Utah
Utah State law requires every formal business entity in Utah (LLCs, corporoations, LPs, LLPs, etc.) to appoint and maintain a registered agent. Utah registered agents accept service of process on behalf of the business to they represent as agent. In lay terms, that means Utah registered agents receive notice of a lawsuit when a business entity like an LLC or corporation is sued. While this is their primary purpose, it’s not a Utah registered agent’s only duty. Registered agents in Utah also receive annual reports, tax notifications, and other important mail from the state.
To put it simply, Utah registered agents are a Utah business entity’s official point of contact.
Utah’s Statutory Registered Agent Requirements
Utah registered agents’ statutory duties are laid out in the state’s Model Registered Agent Act. The act stipulates that in order to be a registered agent, an individual or company must:
- Have an actual street address or rural route box number in Utah where service of process can be physically delivered. P.O. boxes or virtual offices are not acceptable. Someone must sign for and accept the service of process.
- Keep the entity’s current information on file with the Utah Division of Corporations and Commercial Code.
- Be able to receive service of any process, notice, or demand required or permitted by law to be served on the entity (during normal business hours).
- Forward any service of process accepted on the behalf of a Utah entity to that entity.
Although not listed specifically in the Act, the registered agent is also usually expected to forward annual reports to the entity, as well as any other official notice or communication from the state.
Utah registered agents can choose to list themselves as a commercial registered agent, however, there is no mandate or requirement that the registered agent do so.
