New York Certificate of Change - How To

We make it really easy for our clients to change their registered agent, but we’re not gonna sit here and tell you that it’s impossible to do on your own. If you’ve got a DIY attitude, we’re not gonna sucker you into something you don’t need. You don’t have to have someone file your Certificate of Change for you, but you must have a New York registered agent with an office located in New York State.

In order to successfully change your New York registered agent on your own, you will need to complete the Certificate of Change for New York. You can then mail, fax, or deliver the forms in person. The best way to cut down on the processing time without expediting is to fax the completed forms. You should keep in mind that there are two different forms for New York LLCs and New York Corporations.

To complete the Certificate of Change in New York follow these steps:


State the name of your Business Entity


Leave the boxes titled “1” and “2” blank, as you are only changing your registered agent.


List the name and address of your new registered agent in the first box under box “3.”


Sign and date the form, as well as listing whether you are a member or manager of the business.


Restate the name of your business entity.


List your name and street address for return mailing.


Attach the $30 filing fee in the form of check, money order, or complete a debit card authorization form.
