How do I file my Tennessee annual report?

The Secretary of State sends annual reports to the mailing address you specify. Domestic Tennessee corporations cost $20 if there are no changes and $40 if there are. All other entities cost $300 if there are no changes and $320 if there are. Reports are due April 1st, or the first day of the 4th month after your fiscal year ends. Annual reports for Tennessee LLCs get mailed out at the end of December or beginning of January.

What makes Northwest different from other registered agent websites?

Big Data. It is hard to know who to trust these days. We never store your credit card and we never sell your data.

This is serious! Your Tennessee registered agent is your contact for serious legal notices. If your registered agent doesn’t do their job, it can mean real trouble for your business. We are the only national registered agent service that locally scans everything into your online account in real time. We have an office in every state, so when you sign up for our Tennessee registered agent service, we’ll scan everything to you from our office in Memphis, TN. We do more than just mail or email a copy of your notice to you. Our sophisticated calendaring response and tracking system not only sends out reminders, it also makes sure you view any documents we receive for you.

We value your privacy. Another reason you really need to trust your Tennessee registered agent service is because people may contact your registered agent service looking for information on you and your business. Our staff is trained to keep client information private.

Collections. Our company slogan is “We’re Just Not Annoying” and that extends to our billing policy. Every day we talk to new clients who left their old registered agent after becoming annoyed with being nickeled and dimed all the time. We charge one flat fee for service. We never send clients to collections.

Tennessee registered agent service is what we do. This is not something we are trying out. It is not some scheme we are hoping will make us all rich. Our registered agent service is not a small part of some super corporate conglomerate. We’ve made registered agent service our business and we are proud of what we have to offer you.

How do I change my Tennessee registered agent?

It does not cost to change your Tennessee registered agent, so if you would like to switch to us, we would be glad to file the paper work for you after you sign the TN change of agent form in your online account.

Can I Have My Business Mail Delivered To Your Oregon Office?

  • We want to help if possible, but we don’t want all of your business’ mail.
  • Since your business is not on the lease at our address, the postal service might not deliver mail addressed to your business only.
  • As your registered agent in Tennessee, certified mail and official notices come addressed to us care of you.
  • If we do get some of your regular mail,  though, we’ll scan it to your online account in real time.

How do I search for a Tennessee company’s registered agent?

If you want to legally notify someone through their registered agent, just send a certified letter directly to the registered agent name and registered office address.

  • You can do a Tennessee business name search on the state’s website
  • Type in the company name you are trying to look up.
  • Look at the TN registered agent name and registered office street address.

How Do Tennessee Registered Agents Get Served?

Serving a registered agent is legal proof of notification. Whether you receive the documents your Tennessee registered agent signs for or not, once they accept the documents, you’ve legally been notified. This is a serious responsibility and we don’t take it lightly. Here’s how it works:

  1. A process server, the county sheriff, or any third party will walk into our Tennessee office and hands us the documents (service of process), then we sign for them.
  2. The process server then gives an affidavit (a receipt of service) to the court which states that they “served” us.
  3. If you’ve hired us, long before the server hands in their affidavit to the court, you’ve received your documents because we scanned them to your online account within minute of having been served.

Info your TN registered agent should help you know and understand:

Domestic Tennessee corporations cost $100 and you must appoint a TN registered agent.

Domestic LLCs cost $300 or $50 per member whichever is more, to organize.

Foreign corporations have a HUGE filing fee of $600. Sometimes we have helped people create a new domestic

Tennessee entity to avoid this monster fee. Foreign corporations need to keep a Tennessee registered agent at all times.

Foreign LLCs have the same filing fees as domestics, and all LLCs must keep an active Tennessee registered agent.
Filings in Tennessee need to have original inked signatures. You cannot fax the filing in. You can file domestic entities online, but foreign business registrations need to be mailed in. Filings take about 4 days if mailed, and 2 if done online. Your TN registered agent does not need to sign your filing. Completed filings will get mailed back to the address on the envelope you mail with.
