A registered agent is a business or individual who serves as a company’s representative. They are typically tasked with accepting documents on the LLC’s behalf, including official government correspondence. This can include service of process notices, tax information, communication from the Secretary of State, and notices of lawsuits. Registered agents act as a middle-man, as it is their job to see that members of the LLC receive these documents.

How To Change Your Nevada Registered Agent
If you are a business owner in the state of Nevada who is not satisfied with the registered agent currently representing your company, it’s possible that you can make a change.
- Hire a New Agent – First and foremost, business owners should hire a new registered agent before they begin the process of removing their current registered agent. When filing Change of Agent paperwork with the state of Nevada, business owners must provide the information for the new agent.
- File the Required Change of Agent Paperwork with the Nevada Secretary of State – Once they have secured a new registered agent, business owners can file a Statement of Change of Registered Agent by Represented Entity form with the Secretary of State’s office. The new registered agent must sign the document before owners can submit the form. This is the only option that Nevada businesses have to update their registered agent information, as they cannot do so when filing their annual report.
- Pay the Filing Fee – Companies must pay filing fees of $60 when submitting their Change of Agent forms to the state of Nevada. They must send the fees when they file their forms.
