How to Resign as a Registered Agent in Oregon
If you no longer wish to serve as a registered agent for an Oregon corporation, limited liability company (LLC), limited partnership, limited liability partnership, or business trust, there’s one simple document you’ll need to fill out.
There is no official form for registered agents wishing to resign in the state of Oregon. Instead, resigning agents are required to draft a Statement of Resignation. In order to be processed, the statement must include the following details:
- The exact name of the business entity
- The name and address of the resigning agent
- A statement declaring the resignation
- An indication of whether or not the registered office is also discontinued
- The date
- The signature of the resigning agent
After completion, the statement must be mailed to the Corporation Division of the Oregon Secretary of State at the following address:
Oregon Secretary of State
255 Capitol Street NE, Suite 151
Salem, OR 97310-1327
In contrast to many business filings in the state, there is no filing fee to submit a statement of resignation of registered agent. Processing time varies but most will be completed between four and seven days.
In Oregon, resigning agents are required to send a copy of the statement of resignation to the business entity as written notice of the resignation. The resignation will become effective on the 31st day of the month in which it was filed, or when a successor is appointed.
The process for resigning as a registered agent for an Oregon business entity is quite simple, but it’s very important that you complete these steps accurately.
You certainly don’t want to make a mistake that leads to your resignation not being processed correctly, because registered agents are liable for failure to fulfill their responsibilities. We hope this article answered any questions you had about resigning as a registered agent in Oregon!
