Even though it’s a requirement, you still have a choice over who to use. Problems with typical agents—like absenteeism, outdated information, and tardiness—often lead to missed deadlines and worse. CT ensures proper handling of documents like service of process and annual reports, so you’re never blindsided. Additionally, we go above and beyond with incremental services to keep your business running free of surprises.
If you have employees, this is the type of Service of Process you’re most likely to receive. Federal law allows federal agencies to garnish the wages of individuals, for child support, tax liens, student loans, and consumer debt. Employers can be penalized for failing to comply with wage garnishment orders. For this reason, it’s very important to ensure you have a professional registered agent handling your Service of Process. 7% of US employees have their wages garnished, and if you receive a garnishment and fail to take action in time, your business can be liable for the amount your employees owe.
All LLCs, S-Corporations, and C-Corporations must appoint a Registered Agent, also known as a Resident Agent or Statutory 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.
