In the state of Georgia, all businesses registered with the state must appoint and maintain a registered agent (RA). In fact, the state will not approve any business formation filing documents without a registered agent in Georgia.

A registered agent is a third-party person or entity who is designated by your company to act on the company’s behalf, accepting documents for the business, including tax and legal documents.

In the simplest terms, the registered agent is the “mailbox” for the corporation. The RA must be located in the state, and will receive any service of process, documents or other official communication from the Georgia Corporation Division on behalf of the organization. The RA must have a physical address in Georgia, and the agent must be located there during regular business hours. A post office box may not be used.

In Georgia, it is specified by business structure as to who can act as a registered agent.

  • Domestic Profit and Nonprofit Corporations may have:
    • An individual or entity who resides in the state
    • Domestic profit corporation, nonprofit corporation or LLC
    • Foreign profit corporation, nonprofit corporation or LLC authorized to transact business in Georgia
  • Foreign Profit and Nonprofit Corporation may have:
    • Individual who resides in this state whose business office is identical with the registered office
    • Domestic profit, nonprofit corporation or LLC
    • Foreign profit corporation, nonprofit corporation or LLC authorized to transact business in Georgia
  • Domestic Limited Partnership and Domestic Limited Liability Limited Partnership; Foreign Limited Partnership and Foreign Limited Liability Limited Partnership may have:
    • Individual resident of this state
    • Domestic corporation, professional corporation, or LLC
    • Foreign corporation or LLC authorized to transact business in Georgia

If you wish to change your registered agent, you may make the change in your annual registration form, or by filing an amended annual registration form if you’ve already filed for the current year. Note, there is an additional filing fee of $20.00 for the amended registration form.
