What is a Registered Agent?


LLC Formation or Incorporation Filing Service

A Registered Agent is also known as a Resident Agent. Their job is to receive any legal correspondence sent to an LLC or Corporation after it is formed. Some small business owners serve as their own Registered Agents. But since a business's Registered Agent name and contact information is publicly listed, many prefer the privacy of using a third party company as their Registered Agent. Third party Registered Agents typically charge an annual fee, and they simply forward any legal correspondence received on behalf of their clients. If you hire a third party Registered Agent but then later choose not to renew, it is important to remember to update your Registered Agent records with the state so that your business never misses any legal correspondence intended for it.
