New York registered agents need to have physical addresses in New York, be open during business hours, accept documents on your behalf and get them to you. Commercial registered agents in New York should provide tools that help you maintain your company.

Why do I need a New York Registered Agent?

  • The state requires all registered businesses to appoint one.
  • The registered agent requirement exists so the general public and the NY corporations division have a reliable way to contact your business.

Important note: New Yorkers love us because we save them thousands in publication costs every day. A New York statute requires LLCs to publish a summary of their articles of organization in two newspapers in the county of their principal office address. When New York clients hire us, they can use our location as their principal address so they can publish in the local newspapers, which are much cheaper than New York City newspapers. Clients can later change their principal address by filing an amendment or certificate of change and spend far less than they would have paid for publishing in any NYC newspaper.
