Registered Agent Services
What is a Registered Agent?
Every U.S. state requires that businesses located in their jurisdiction must appoint a registered agent. A registered agent is a responsible party who is designated to receive federal and state legal documents and service of process (SOPs) on behalf of your business. Service of process includes summonses or subpoenas and other notifications resulting from a lawsuit.
What Does a Registered Agent Do?
Anyone serving process upon a company must typically do so in person. Serving notice against a business means going to the office or location of the registered agent and presenting the document. Registered agents are required by states to be open for business during all business hours—9:00 to 5:00 Monday through Friday, except holidays.
The registered agent will then email to the business with a copy of the document that can be uploaded, in some cases, the document will be sent by mail . The document will also be mailed if the registered agent receives anything that requires a signature.
Registered Agents provide additional services, such as filing documents, notifying businesses of upcoming events like annual filings or franchise tax filing dates.
You won't have to worry about missing important documents while your business is mobile or you travel frequently. You won't be in danger of having fines or penalties imposed if you miss a deadline, and you won't be in danger of falling out of good standing with your state.
Failing to name a registered agent can lead to fines or even company revocation. You
could be barred from pursuing recourse in the state courts or prevented from entering into legal contracts. Reinstatement proceedings can be expensive, time consuming, and subject to additional penalties and sanctions.
