California requires you to appoint and maintain an in-state Registered Agent.

California laws are highly complex. And, state and legal notices are too important to risk getting lost in the shuffle. Any misstep can be disastrous. Your registered agent must handle essential documents (such as annual reports and service of process) correctly and deliver them swiftly to the right people. CT’s experience and expertise removes that worry from your shoulders.

You Can Rely on CT to:

  • Record your Registered Agent information with California—essential to keep your business in good standing
  • Receive state documents and legal notices, including Service of Process and wage garnishment notices, and promptly relay them to your designated contacts—so nothing gets overlooked
  • Monitor laws and regulations—to make sure you aren’t caught off guard by changes
  • Designate a specific team to serve as your go-to resource for answers to your questions—you won’t get the round around
  • Customize your Registered Agent services if you wish to include alerts of upcoming deadlines and forwarding of business documents—so you’ll have less to manage

How To Keep Your Business In Compliance

Why do states require companies to have a Registered Agent?

Almost every state requires you to designate a Registered Agent to serve as an official contact for your business. State agencies and courts send your company important compliance information and official correspondence through your Registered Agent. For most businesses, this correspondence consists of annual report and tax filing correspondence. Your Registered Agent is also responsible for receiving Service of Process and legal mandates for your company and promptly relaying them to the correct individuals within your business.
