What exactly is a registered agent (AKA resident agent, statutory agent or corporate agent), and why would I need one?

  • A registered agent is a person or entity, designated in the articles of incorporation / organization, who can accept legal documents and notifications from a state office on behalf of a corporate entity. All corporations and Limited-Liability Companies (LLCs) must choose a person or entity to act as their registered agent. There are few restrictions regarding who can be a registered agent other than that the person or entity must be located and available at a physical street address within the state during normal business hours. It is important that you select a reliable company when choosing your registered agent.

Perhaps you’ve heard that you can act as your own registered agent… beware!

  • If you act as your own agent, you don’t have the flexibility to close your office at your will or have flexible hours since you must always be open to accept service of process. Additionally, having a registered agent saves you from potentially being served with legal papers in front of your family, clients, neighbors or vendors.
