In Indiana, a registered agent is a business or individual designated to receive legal documents and notifications on behalf of a business. A registered agent must be an Indiana resident or have a business office in the state. If your business needs to resign its registered agent in Indiana, there are a few steps that you must take.
First, you must provide written notice of the registered agent’s resignation to the Indiana Secretary of State. This notice can be faxed or mailed to the office, and must include the name of the company, the name of the registered agent, the mailing address, and the effective date of the resignation. The Secretary of State must receive the notice within 30 days of the effective date.
Second, the registered agent must sign a document that states that the agent is resigning from their position. This document must be notarized, and must include the name and address of the registered agent, the name and address of the company, and the effective date of the resignation. The notarized document must then be submitted to the Indiana Secretary of State.
Finally, the company must appoint a new registered agent in order to remain in compliance with Indiana state law. The company must submit a new registered agent form and pay the filing fee to the Indiana Secretary of State. The new form must include the name, address, and signature of the new registered agent.
By following these steps, you can successfully resign your registered agent in Indiana. For more information, please visit the Indiana Secretary of State website.
