What Is a Registered Agent?

You Can Count on Your Registered Agent

All corporations and LLCs, are required by law to have an address where they can accept service of legal documents and notifications from the state or other governmental agencies.

But this isn't always possible, especially if you operate a home-based business or have a foreign-filed business. That's where a registered agent comes in.

A registered agent is a responsible third-party in the same state as your business who receives official government notifications (usually tax forms and notice of lawsuits) on behalf of your LLC or Corporation.

Additional Info 

A business must have a registered agent in each state where they do business.

Registered agents must adhere to strict rules, including a requirement that they remain available at a single location during all business hours.

Business owners are technically able to service as their own registered agents, but given the strict rules, it's not advisable.
