“We have used CT as our registered agent in every state. They keep us in the loop about Service of Process notices we receive, alert us to upcoming filing dates, and help us foreign qualify when we start doing business in new states.”

Theresa Queenan, Chief Financial Officer, Bob Ray Co., Inc.

"When we have needed to expand our business into other states, CT has been there to help us complete the necessary filings quickly and efficiently. And when we’ve had questions, they’re always very responsive no matter communicating with them on or offline. CT’s services are easy to use, making it simpler for us to stay compliant."

Duanne Slafta, Compliance Supervisor, Stringer Ware & Company, Inc.

“Being able to offload some of it to CT Corporation makes all the difference. Any time I get a request from a Secretary of State office, I forward it to my CT representative, and she handles it. She knows exactly what filings and documents are needed.”

What to Look for When Choosing a New Jersey Registered Agent

Among other things, your registered agent should be reliable, accurate and consistent. Your New Jersey Registered Agent should -

  • always be available and physically present at the registered office during normal business hours. This ensures any hand-delivered legal documents get proper attention,
  • know all New Jersey business entity and compliance rules,
  • have professionally trained staff with expert knowledge on how to properly handle and forward SOP papers,
  • have state-of-the-art processes in place to deliver crucial documents to you, and to follow-up with you regarding delivery, and,
  • have offices in the states where the business may expand into as you will be required to have a registered agent in order to register to do business in those other states.

The Importance of Having a New Jersey Registered Agent

Having a professional New Jersey Registered Agent ensures that things such as personal emergencies, vacations, business trips, and meetings never leave your company without this physical presence. Keep in mind, a lawsuit can proceed against you, even if your registered agent is not available to receive service. You may lose the opportunity to defend yourself in court or incur extra legal fees.

In addition to the registered agent’s statutory responsibilities of receiving and forwarding documents, professional service companies often provide a full range of services for LLCs, corporations and other types of business entities to help them with their compliance needs.  The right professional services company can help you stay in compliance and make sure all of your documents are handled correctly.
