Most companies forming or qualifying within a jurisdiction need to appoint a registered agent with the jurisdiction’s governing office.
A registered agent is an entity or individual named with the governing office to accept Service of Process (notification of legal proceedings) and all official notices from the jurisdiction on behalf of the company.
You may use the registered agent address when incorporating, forming or qualifying an entity and need to provide an address where governmental mail and legal papers can be delivered. The registered agent address should never be listed as the company’s physical address nor should it appear on your company’s letterhead, other stationary items or communications such as websites. (If your address needs are outside of these guidelines, visit the Enhanced Registered Agent Services page for more information. Mail Forwarding or Virtual Office Service may be what you are looking for.)
Absolutely! We will even prepare and file the forms without charging a service fee. (Jurisdictional fees may apply.)
As your registered agent, it is both important and required that you keep the registered agent informed of any changes to your contact information such as address, phone number and e-mail. Neglecting to update this information can cause delayed receipt of annual reports and/or notifications. These reports/notifications have deadlines your company must meet and failure to meet these deadlines may cause your company to fall into defunct status with the jurisdiction’s governing office.
