Stay Informed and Maintain Compliance. Your most critical documents skillfully managed by a company
with over 120 years of Registered Agent experience.

Why do I need a Registered Agent?

All LLCs, S Corporations, and C Corporations are required by law to appoint a Registered Agent, also known as a Resident Agent or Statutory Agent.

What exactly will my Registered Agent do for my business?

The primary role of an agent is to receive service of legal papers, as well as important state and federal mail, including tax forms, annual corporate and LLC report forms, and legal notices.

  • Correctly handling official state documents is critical to keeping your company in full compliance. Ensuring their prompt delivery is the only way to guarantee your awareness of filing deadlines and court proceedings crucial to the smooth operation of your business.
  • As your point of contact with state agencies and courts, your agent must have a physical address in the state where you do business, a post office box won't do.

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

You would forfeit your company’s legal right to do business. Once you lose that right, restrictions are serious. For instance, you lose the ability to enforce contracts, secure financial loans, and initiate lawsuits in your state of business. The resulting damage to your company’s reputation is often irreparable. Regaining your good standing is a costly and time-consuming, so best to avoid going down this road.

What if I want to change my Registered Agent?

We make it easy for you to change your Registered Agent. CT will obtain and file the required forms with the Secretary of State where your business is registered. If a Change of Registered Agent Form is required, or if an amendment to the articles of incorporation / formation must be filed such as in Delaware, CT will manage the process.

Plus, you can switch to CT for free. When you change your agent to CT, we pay all Change of Agent filing fees imposed by the state.
