Registered Agent Representation for Start-Up Businesses

As a registered business (corporation, limited liability company, limited partnership, etc), you are required to maintain a Registered Agent in every state where you are qualified to do business. A Registered Agent is the person or organization you name as responsible for accepting legal documents (aka Service of Process/SOP), tax notices and other important communications on behalf of your business.

It is important to name a Registered Agent you trust as mishandling of a critical legal or tax document can have serious consequences such as loss of good standing or the entry of a default judgment.

Business owners can choose to act as their own Registered Agent, but many decide they would rather focus their time and energy on growing their business and outsource these responsibilities to a professional Registered Agent service provider.
