National Registered Agent, Inc., (NRAI) is the preeminent professional service provider for companies large and small across the United States. With our expansive team of trusted, experts in all 50 U.S. states, NRAI has specialized knowledge about state regulations that can help your company thrive and maintain its reputation and legal standing.
Utah state law requires that every company designate a registered agent or physical address where your company can be reached during normal business hours. This ensures that your company receives any “service of process”—important legal notices or documents—from the Secretary of State. Or in the event of a lawsuit, a registered agent ensures that you are notified and can fashion a timely response. If your company is seeking a registered agent to represent you in the state of Utah, let us serve your company by calling (800) 520-6724 or visiting www.registeredagent.com.
In addition to having a registered agent in the state of your company’s origin, you will need one for every other U.S. state in which you choose to conduct business. Finding a reliable and highly qualified registered agent can be a tedious process. NRAI can simplify that process for you. In addition to receiving service of process in Utah on your company’s behalf, NRAI offers many other services that may be useful for your business. These services include a comprehensive database of forms and documents from every state. Another key NRAI feature is Company Guard®, which helps protect your business by staying vigilant about regulatory deadlines and filings that can otherwise consume valuable time and energy.

LLCs in Utah (Domestic and Foreign)
An LLC is a business entity that limits the personal liabilities of its owner(s) and may be owned by a single individual. There are two kinds of LLCs in Utah – domestic and foreign. A domestic LLC is one whose Articles of Organization are filed with the Utah Secretary of State. A foreign LLC is one whose Articles of Organization are filed with a state other than Utah, but may also do business within Utah’s state boundaries.
Both domestic and foreign LLCs must register a name for their business that includes the words “limited liability company,” “limited company” or an abbreviation of one of those terms.
