How to Resign as a Registered Agent in Nebraska
If you no longer wish to serve as a registered agent for a Nebraska corporation, limited liability company (LLC), limited partnership, limited liability partnership, or business trust, there’s one simple document you’ll need to fill out.
In Nebraska, there is no official form that registered agents must complete if this wish to resign. Instead, resigning registered agents must simply draft and submit two copies of a Statement of Resignation to the Business Services Division of the Nebraska Secretary of State. When drafting the document, be sure to include the following information:
- The exact name of the corporation or LLC
- Your name and address
- A statement declaring the resignation
- Your name printed
- Your signature and a date
This is the Statement of Resignation of Registered Agent, which is a one-page document including the following information:
- Your name
- Name of the business entity you are resigning from
- The business structure of that entity
- State or country of the business entity’s origin
- Your mailing address
- Your signature
After completion, you must submit two copies of the document to the Business Services Division at the following address:
Nebraska Secretary of State
Business Services Division
P.O. Box 94608
Lincoln, NE 68509
The fee to submit a Statement of Resignation of Registered Agent will depend on the business entity type: for corporations, there is no fee. For LLCs, there is $10 fee plus $5.00 for any additional pages. Documents usually take around 3-4 days to process.
In Nebraska, it is not necessary for registered agents to inform the business entity of the resignation. After the resigning agent submits two copies of the Statement of Resignation to the Nebraska Secretary of State, the Business Services Division will process the documents and send a copy of the resignation to the business entity as written notice of the appointment termination. The resignation is effective on the 31st day after the statement is filed.
The process for resigning as a registered agent for a Nebraska 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 Nebraska!
