Every business, large or small, is required by law to designate a registered agent who can receive “service of process” from the state and ensure that all critical notices from the government reach you in time. A registered agent is needed for every state in which your company wishes to operate. The agent need only maintain a physical address within the boundaries of the state where the agent can be reached during normal business hours.
Service of process can include any legal notice or filing the state may send to your company, including the event of a lawsuit filed against you by another party. Because these often involve important legal matters, having a trusted agent who understands the unique nature of your business and the commercial regulations of your state is imperative to keep your business in good standing. This allows you to grow your business to its greatest potential.
