What Is a Registered Agent?

A registered agent (or a resident agent or statutory agent depending on the business location) is an individual or a legal entity responsible, on behalf of a business, for the reception of important legal documents and notifications from a state office. They are also responsible for receiving SOP (service of process) notifications when a business becomes involved in legal action. In other words, a Pennsylvania registered agent is your company's primary point of contact with Pennsylvania state entities and the avenue through which you receive communications through these entities in regards to your business. It is also the main conduit in which your business will receive any important communications regarding notices of legal action taken against your company, i.e. another party filing a lawsuit against your company. When starting a new company, Pennsylvania business owners will be asked to identify who their registered agent is within their articles of incorporation/organization. The role of a registered agent can either be fulfilled by an individual or state-qualified corporate agent.

What Does a Pennsylvania Registered Agent Do??

Having a registered agent is a requirement every time you register a new Pennsylvania LLC or corporation. It is important to select a reliable company to act as your Pennsylvania 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 state of Pennsylvania 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

    Using an official Pennsylvania address, a registered agent safely and securely receives important legal documents such as your annual filing notices on behalf of your business. Having a Pennsylvania registered agent receive legal notifications for your business, you avoid the risks of lost or misplaced mail associated with receiving such documents at a home or business address. Additionally, you can trust that a registered agent will handle your official mail correctly and responsibly, complying with the law and any necessary legal procedures that may be involved.

  • Flexibility

    With a registered agent, you will not need to have someone remain at a physical business location during business hours. Having a Pennsylvania registered agent keeps you compliant to receive legal notices by always being available during normal business hours. If you change your business address in the future, you will not need to update your business information with the state of Pennsylvania.

Having a registered agent is required in almost every state. The purpose is for the state to show a physical address in that state at which the company can be served with legal documents. We also receive notifications from many states and help you keep your company in good standing. An added benefit is the security of knowing InCorp is here to fulfill this requirement and provide you with a little more privacy.

When hiring InCorp as your commercial registered agent, we do not automatically file your documents to register your entity with the state. Formation and qualification filings are separate services, and we will be happy to prepare the entire filing for you once the additional service has been purchased. Our order processing team members will automatically provide consent forms for the states that require them, and we're here to help with Registered Agent Change forms at no additional charge if you'd like our assistance.

In most cases, yes, but we do require that you also be filed with the Secretary of State. Some agencies have requirements that we can't meet, like an address in a specific county or an individual serving instead of InCorp as a company. If you send over the document we'll review it to make sure we can meet the requirements.

The first thing is to order service. Once your order is placed and you have received the confirmation email, please contact our order processing team to proceed. Some states require our signature but it does not have to be a mailed original so you can just reply to your order confirmation with the document attached and we'll sign and return it to you. Other states require our original signature, in which case you can email us the document, we will sign it and mail it to you for submission to the state. Alternatively, you can mail us the complete package of documents and state payment and we will sign and forward the package to the state for you. A few states, like Wyoming, require a separate Registered Agent Consent form. We'll send that directly to you after your order is placed. Please call our order processing team or email us with any additional questions or concerns.

The general rule is that InCorp only serves as a Pennsylvania registered agent for entities registered with the Secretary of State. We can serve for other agencies as well but need to be listed with the Secretary of State, also. When looking for a registered agent for an individual, we recommend using an attorney or law office.
