What is a Registered Agent?


A Registered Agent is an agent that receives important documents on your entities behalf, which sometimes can be tax and or state documents. A Registered Agents main purpose is handling (SOP) service of process. In the case you entity may be a party in a legal mater your Agent will be forwarding all legal notices they receive on your behalf to you (the client). For your protection the state requires you to keep a current address with your Registered Agent, this is important because you donít want your Agent to have any problem in getting time sensitive materials to you.
