Why Do Businesses Need a Registered Agent, Resident Agent or Statutory Agent, and What Do They Do?

A registered agent, resident agent, or statutory agent (dependent upon your state where you do business) is an individual or state-qualified corporate agent. A registered agent is responsible for receiving important documents from state entities and receiving service of process (SOP) communications when legal action is taken against a business entity. A registered agent is identified within a business's articles of incorporation/organization. It is required by law in all 50 states that companies registered as legal entities have and declare a registered agent. This structure is set up in part to help protect businesses as a part of due process.

Why You Need a Registered Agent in South Dakota

Having a registered agent is required whenever you register a new Corporation or LLC in South Dakota. You must select a reliable company or individual to act as your South Dakota registered agent. Failing to establish and maintain a registered agent can negatively affect the legal status of your company within the state and result in extra, unnecessary expenses. The person or entity must be located and available during normal business hours at a physical street address within the borders of South Dakota. A mailbox service or P.O. Box is not sufficient to represent your company as its 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 South Dakota.
