Change Georgia Registered Agent
Georgia Annual Registration
To change your registered agent in Georgia, you file an Annual Registration with the Corporations Division. This is normally filed between January 1 and April 1. However, to change to your registered agent, company address, or registered office address, the form can be filed at any time throughout the year.
There is a $50 filing fee. An Annual Registration can be filed through the mail, but it is preferrable to file the form online. Online filings are processed immediately.
When filing, you will need your Control Number, which was issued to your company when it was formed. If you have forgotten your Control Number, you can do a Business Name Search at the start of the online filing, which will bring up your company records along with your Control Number.

Georgia Registered Agent FAQ
As your Georgia registered agent, it is our job to accept service of process (notice of litigation) and legal correspondence on behalf of your business. When service of process is issued by a court, it will be delivered to our office. We will accept these documents, notify you immediately, and scan the documents into your online account where you can view them instantly.
Your Georgia registered agent helps your business maintain good standing with the Corporations Division and stay compliant with state law.
Yes. The Georgia Code requires all business entities to designate and maintain a Georgia registered agent. You cannot form a business with the Corporations Division or register a foreign (out-of-state) company without appointing a registered agent.
A Georgia registered agent must be one of the following:
- A resident of the state whose business office is identical with the registered office
- A domestic corporation, non-profit, or LLC whose business office is identical with the registered office
- A foreign corporation, non-profit or LLC authorized to do business in Georgia whose business office is identical with the registered office
You must appoint a Georgia registered agent when you form a domestic business or when you are registering an out-of-state company. You can make the appointment on the following forms:
- Georgia LLC: Articles of Organization
- Georgia Corporation: Articles of Incorporation
- Foreign Companies: Certificate of Authority
Yes, you can legally appoint yourself as your own registered agent in Georgia. However, in order to do so, you must maintain all of the legal qualifications for registered agents:
- Be a resident of the state
- Have a physical address within the state
- Keep regular business hours at your registered office
- Accept service of process on behalf of your company
Many business owners find it difficult to maintain these regulations. If you work from home, for example, you would end up listing your home address as your registered office, which puts your address into the public record. And you cannot go on extended holidays or vacations, as a registered agent must keep regular business hours throughout the year.
You can change your Georgia registered agent by filing an Annual Registration with updated information. You can file online or by mail. The filing fee is $50.
If you are changing your registered agent to CFS, we will pay your change of agent fee for you.
