What is a Registered Agent a.k.a. Resident Agent or Statutory Agent?

A registered agent (also known as a statutory agent or resident agent depending on the state) is a person or legal entity, designated in the articles of incorporation/organization, who can accept legal documents and notifications from a state office or receive SOP (service of process) when a business entity is involved in legal action.

Why You Need a Registered Agent

Having a registered agent is a requirement every time you register a new Corporation or LLC. You must select a reliable company to act as your District of Columbia registered agent. Failing to establish and maintain a registered agent can have negative effects on the legal status of your company within the state and result in extra, unnecessary expenses. The person or entity must be located and available at a physical street address within the District of Columbia during normal business hours. A mailbox service or P.O. Box cannot represent you as your registered agent.

How Registered Agent Service Can Help Your Business

  • Legal Notifications

    A registered agent provides you with an official address to receive your annual filing notices and other legal notices, handling them correctly and with compliance. Having important notices sent directly to your business location or home has many risks such as important mail being misplaced.

  • Flexibility

    With a registered agent, you will not need to maintain a physical business location or hours. Having a registered agent keeps you compliant with receiving legal notices by always being available during normal business hours. If you change your business address or move in the future, you will not need to update your business information with the state of District of Columbia.
