A "corporate registered agent" is a company that is authorized to represent a corporation in a given U.S. state. For every state in which it operates, a corporation is required to designate a registered agent to be responsible for receiving "service of process" and documents from the state on behalf of the corporation.
Registered agents are referred to by a variety of names in many states. Common terms include "resident agents" or "statutory agents." A corporation may elect to provide its own statutory representation or act as its own agent – corporation registered agents are required only to maintain a physical address at which they can be reached by the state or process server during all normal business hours.
But navigating complex state laws on your own and staying up to date on the newest legislation can be challenging. Because of this, many corporations choose to hire a third party agent who has specialized knowledge about the laws of a given state. Enlisting your business to a reliable corporation registered agent can give you peace of mind that your company remains in full compliance with the legal obligations of the state. This helps ensure that your corporation maintains good legal standing in the state, which in turn contributes to the overall success of your business.
