Frequently Asked Questions
What types of documents does a registered agent collect for legal actions?
A registered agent plays a crucial role in the smooth operation of a business, especially for those without a physical location in the state where they are registered. The primary responsibility of a registered agent is to collect various types of documents on behalf of the business.
These documents are essential for legal actions and include served court documents, Secretary of State notifications, official State communications, State tax notifications, and annual report notices.
The registered agent acts as the point of contact for the state, ensuring that the business can be reached at all times. This role is critical as it ensures that the business remains in good standing with the state.
Failure to have a registered agent can lead to severe consequences, including fines, inability to enter legal contracts, license removal, and lack of access to court systems.
Once the registered agent receives these legal documents, they scan, store, and send them via email with regular follow-ups. If a hardcopy requires a signature, they forward the information via mail. They also provide a compliance calendar, both online and offline, to remind the business of important due dates for reports and tax returns.
