Idaho Registered Agent

How Registered Agent Service Works in Idaho

  1. You start an Idaho company by filing formation documents with the Idaho Secretary of State.
  2. On your formation document, you must appoint an Idaho registered agent. A registered agent is assigned to accept service of process on behalf of your company.
  3. The Secretary of State will publicly list the name and address of your registered agent.
  4. When litigation is brought against your company, a process server will need to deliver a notice to your business, called a service of process. The process server will look up the address of your registered agent, and deliver the notice to them.
  5. Your registered agent accepts the service of process on your behalf, which is legal acknowledgment that you have been notified.
  6. Your agent contacts you, informing you of the service of process, and then forwards the document to you in a timely manner.

Legal Requirements for Idaho Registered Agents

The Idaho Uniform Business Organizations Code (Part 4, 30-21-413) outlines the legal duties of a registered agent:

  • To forward to clients any service of process, notice or demand pertaining to the clients that is served or received by the agent
  • To provide official notices, such as annual report reminders, to clients when they are received by the agent

In order to meet these duties, a registered agent must have and maintain a registered office (a physical street location within the state, not a PO box). The registered office must be kept open during regular business hours year round. All documents must be forwarded to clients in a timely manner.
