CT agents keep everything in check:

  • Recording your information with the state—a necessary step to stay in good standing
  • Sifting through time-consuming bulk mail, filtering out junk and increasingly common fraudulent annual records solicitations
  • Forwarding of legal notices and state mandates to the right people
  • Alerting you to jurisdictional changes that could impact your business and managing other documents of your choice (an additional fee)

Why you need the right registered agent

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 Problems with typical agents—like absenteeism, outdated information, and tardiness—often lead to missed deadlines and worse.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.

Registered Agent FAQs

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.

What happens to my business if I don't have a Registered Agent?

Because a Registered Agent is required by law, failing to have one can cost your company its good standing in that state. This means you could lose the ability to secure loans and initiate lawsuits in your state of business. It might even endanger your limited liability protection.
