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...
Not a good idea!
If you act as your own agent, you don't have the flexibility to close your office or have flexible hours since you must always be open to accept
service of process (SOP). Additionally, having a registered agent saves you from potentially being served with legal papers in front of your family, clients, neighbors
or vendors. Lastly, you will appreciate having a professional registered agent service to track and notify you of annual reports being due and other filings
that you may have to periodically file.
Remember: If your Registered Agent is not reliable, you could lose your corporate or Limited-Liability Company status and have to pay considerable penalties.
This is why national registered agent services is InCorp's primary business!
