How to Resign as a Registered Agent in Oklahoma
If you no longer wish to serve as a registered agent for an Oklahoma corporation, limited liability company (LLC), limited partnership, limited liability partnership, or business trust, there’s one simple form you’ll need to fill out.
Registered agents wishing to resign without appointing a successor may do so easily by submitting a resignation document. Depending on what type of entity the business is, the necessary document will be either the Resignation of Registered Agent Not Coupled with Successor for Oklahoma Corporations or the Resignation of Registered Agent for Oklahoma LLCs. Both forms have much of the same requirements, including the following information:
- The exact name of the business entity
- Confirmation that written notice has been given to the business entity
- The address to which written notice was furnished
- The name of the registered agent
- The signature of the registered agent and the date
The documents may be either submitted online or completed as PDFs and mailed to the Oklahoma Secretary of State at the following address:
Oklahoma Secretary of State
421 N. W. 13th , Suite 210
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73103
In Oklahoma, registered agents must pay a processing fee of $25.00 in order to resign. The processing time for the document depends on the manner in which it is submitted; online submissions are often processed immediately, while mailed submissions generally take between 4 and 7 business days.
In Oklahoma, resigning registered agents are required to give written notice to the business entity no less than 30 days before the resignation document is submitted to the Secretary of State. In signing and filing the document, the registered agent certifies that written notice has been given.
The process for resigning as a registered agent for an Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma!
