Pennsylvania Registered Agent Services

If you start or expand your business in Pennsylvania, you’re required to designate a Pennsylvania Registered Agent and a Registered Office in Pennsylvania to receive service of process and important correspondence from the state on behalf of your company.

CT provides registered agent services for a wide range of businesses in the State of Pennsylvania. State laws require companies to designate registered agents who can receive Service of Process for the company - this is the procedure the government uses to serve companies with official notices or documents, for example, a summons or a lawsuit. The registered agent is responsible for receiving service of process and forwarding the correspondence to the company the agent represents.

Companies may hire professional third party providers such as CT to handle their service of process duties. This allows busy managers to focus on their business while a trusted designee takes care of the paperwork with the state to help the company maintain full regulatory compliance. CT also offers registered office services, which is also a commercial requirement of every U.S. state. A registered office is a location chosen by the company where service of process is to be delivered. This address may be, but does not need to be, the same as the company’s regular office where its daily business operations take place.
