Registered Agent Services

A Registered Agent That’s More Than a Name

A registered agent should be more than an annual bill and a name on your entity forms to fulfill your state requirements. Your registered agent should offer the freedom to choose, the flexibility to customize and real help for what you need. These are qualities you should look for when evaluating the offerings of international and national registered agents.

We’re a partner for meeting your deadlines, managing your entity information and filings, handling your most sensitive legal communications and providing comprehensive online tools.

What is a Registered Agent?

A registered agent is an individual or company that has been designated to receive legal and tax documents on behalf of the organization it represents. In most states, the registered agent must have a physical address in the state where communications can be sent and needs to be available during normal business hours for the receipt of such documents.

Since the majority of states require by statute that businesses have a registered agent, failure to do so can have serious consequences. A business can be involuntarily dissolved by the state affecting the company’s ability to do business in that state and in other states where the company is qualified to do business.

Businesses that operate nationwide or globally generally choose to appoint a professional registered agent service that can also assist with filings and document retrieval.
