Registered Agent Services

Almost all U.S. jurisdictions require any business entity that is formed or doing business within their borders to designate and maintain a “registered agent.”

This registered agent serves as a point of contact that is always available during normal business hours and to whom notices of legal action, tax notices, and annual business renewals can be delivered.

Registered agents also help business entities maintain their good standing across multiple jurisdictions by keeping track of legislative actions, monitoring business compliance requirements, and reporting important changes and due dates to the business entity. Failing to designate a registered agent can result in a jurisdiction revoking your legal entity status, imposing penalties/fines on the entity, or both.

When you form a new business or expand your business into other states, it is a matter of corporate governance that you designate a registered agent. You CAN serve as your own registered agent, or you can leave this responsibility to us so you can focus on your business.
