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.
