Requirements for Vermont Registered Agents
All corporations and LLCs formed or registered to do business in Vermont are required to appoint and “continuously maintain” a Vermont registered office and a Vermont registered agent.
What is a Vermont Registered Agent?
Vermont registered agents are a person or entity designated by a company to receive official communications from the state on its behalf. Most Vermont registered agents are companies in the business of being a registered agent. Others are simply individual residents of the State of Vermont. All registered agents in Vermont must have a physical presence in the state and occupy the registered office address during normal business hours to accept service of process on behalf of companies listing that person or company as their resident agent. That means registered agents cannot have a P.O. box as their registered office; they must have a physical address where they can accept official notices and mail. The Vermont Secretary of State sees the registered agent as the mailing point of contact between the SOS and the entity that has hired the agent.
Why Vermont Registered Agents are Essential
As an officially registered Vermont business, you’ll receive crucial communication from the Secretary of State to keep your company in good standing. You need to know when someone notifies you. When you create a corporation or LLC, your entity does not automatically become the Secretary of State’s point of communication. A registered agent in Vermont accepts communication on behalf of a Vermont business entity and ensures the responsible parties receive notice or service of process.
The requirement to maintain a Vermont registered agent may seem like an inconvenience, but you’re forming a company. Unlikely as it may seem on the outset, someone might have problems with your company and decide to sue. It’s important to have a reliable way to receive tax notifications and legal papers. That’s why Vermont registered agents are important.
How to Change Your Registered Agent in Vermont
Changing registered agents in Vermont is a simple and inexpensive process. You can either file online or file a Change of Registered Agent form with the Vermont Secretary of State. The form is $25 to file by mail or online. The change of registered agent by mail takes about a week for the Secretary of State to process.
What it Takes to be a Vermont Registered Agent
The main requirement of being a registered agent in Vermont is that you have a physical address in Vermont where you can accept physical mail from process servers. If the registered agent is a business, it must be registered either as a foreign entity with authority to do business in Vermont, or a domestic Virginia entity. You must have an actual address—not a virtual office or P.O. box—where you’ll be available to receive service of process during normal business hours. If you meet those qualifications, then you could use your own office in Vermont and list your own name as the registered agent.
