Starting a Business With National Registered Agents, Inc
When starting a new company, one of the first important decisions involves selecting which type of business entity you wish to be. Two of the most common structures are corporations and limited liability companies (LLCs). Each offers unique benefits for its owner(s) and requires specific steps in accordance with the regulations of your home state.
When forming a new company, you must choose a unique name and file an "Articles of Organization" or "Articles of Corporation" with the state government, along with any necessary fees. Be sure to review the commercial laws of your state to better understand the specific requirements you must meet. Filing fees and processes also differ slightly from state to state.
In addition to the above, every company operating in the United States must designate a "registered agent" to receive "service of process" from the state on behalf of your business. Depending on the state, registered agents may also be referred to as "resident agents" or "statutory agents." You will need a dedicated registered agent for every state in which you do business. Registered agents must maintain a physical address where they can be reached during normal business hours.
Choosing an agent you can trust can be a challenging decision for any business owner, as you could be putting at stake the good name of your company. The agent should be someone you can trust to help you navigate the legal requirements of your state to ensure your business does not fall out of good standing with the state.
