Frequently Asked Questions

What is the role of a registered agent in an LLC?

A registered agent plays a crucial role in the formation and operation of a Limited Liability Company (LLC). This individual or business entity is responsible for representing your LLC in the acceptance and service of legal papers. This includes any legal documents, notices, or official government correspondence addressed to your LLC.
The registered agent must either be a resident of the state where your LLC is registered or a business authorized to operate in that state.
Additionally, they must have a physical address within the state. This ensures that they are readily available to receive and handle important legal and tax documents on behalf of your LLC, ensuring that you don't miss any crucial information or deadlines.
The registered agent's information, including their name and address, is included in the Articles of Organization, a legal document that provides the state with basic information about your LLC. This document is filed with the Secretary of State or the appropriate office in your state, either online, through the mail, or by fax.
