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 Problems with typical agents—like absenteeism, outdated information, and tardiness—often lead to missed deadlines and worse.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.
All LLCs, S-Corporations, and C-Corporations must appoint a Registered Agent, also known as a Resident Agent or Statutory Agent.
Because a Registered Agent is required by law, failing to have one can cost your company its good standing in that state. Loss of good standing impacts the ability to secure loans and initiate lawsuits in your state of business. It might even endanger your limited liability protection.
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.
