What Is a Registered Agent?

A registered agent, a resident agent, or a statutory agent (the name differs depending on the state in which you operate your business) is an individual or state-qualified corporate agent that receives official legal notices and service of process (SOP) on behalf of a business. All 50 states require that businesses that are considered legal entities within the state have a registered agent, and this information will be listed within a business's articles of incorporation/organization. A Tennessee registered agent protects businesses from missing important legal notices and service of process communications and the resulting issues that may arise from this. Having a registered agent is an important aspect of responsibly operating a business in Tennessee that complies with state legal requirements.

What Does a Registered Agent Do for Your Business?

Having a registered agent is a requirement every time you register a new Tennessee LLC or corporation. You should select an experienced company to act as your Tennessee 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 Tennessee 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 will receive important legal notifications at an official address within the borders of Tennessee on behalf of your business. Important documents, such as your annual filing notices, SOP (service of process), etc., will be handled responsibly and in compliance with the law by your registered agent. In addition, by using a Tennessee registered agent with an official address, you will avoid the risks of losing or misplacing your mail, commonly associated with having it sent to a home or business address.

  • Flexibility

    By having a registered agent, you will be compliant with Tennessee law by always receiving important legal notifications at an official address in state provided to you by your registered agent. This means you don't have to be present at your physical business location during standard business hours to receive official mail, and you don't even have to have a physical Tennessee business location if you should choose not to. For example, suppose you have a physical business location and decide to move. When you receive legal notifications through your registered agent, you will not need to update your business address with the state.

  • Online filings are available for registering new entities, annual reports and Registered Agent changes.
  • Tennessee does not offer expedite filing, but filings are processed in just 2-3 business days.

Tennessee Registered Agents are a person or company designated on public record to accept legal documents (service of process) and notifications from the Tennessee Secretary of State's office on behalf of the corporate entity. There are few restrictions regarding who can be listed as a Registered Agent, the most important being that the Registered Agent must be located and available at a physical street address, within the state of Tennessee, during normal business hours.
  • Your Tennessee Registered Agent will be responsible, on your behalf, to receive all government notifications sent to Registered Agents, and litigation (service of process) documents. In Tennessee, InCorp's address is for Registered Agent service only.

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 Tennessee 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.
