Frequently Asked Questions
What are the requirements for a registered agent?
A registered agent is a crucial part of any business, especially if your business doesn't have a physical location in the state where it's registered. The requirements for a registered agent are quite straightforward.
Firstly, they must be a resident of the state where your business is registered. This is because the state needs to be able to contact someone on your behalf within the state at all times. Secondly, they must have a physical address to receive documents. P.O. Boxes are not acceptable as registered agent addresses.
The role of a registered agent extends beyond just accepting tax and legal documents on your behalf. They are also allowed to have a role in the business operations.
They receive all service of process documents for legal actions, including served court documents, Secretary of State notifications, official State communications, state tax notifications, and annual report notices.
They scan, store, and send these documents via email with regular follow-ups. If a hardcopy needs a signature, they forward the information via mail. They also provide a compliance calendar to remind you of important due dates for reports and tax returns.
