Expanding Your Business Beyond Your Home State
If you have formed or incorporated a company somewhere in the United States, you named a registered agent for your state when you completed your paperwork. What many people may not know, however, is that if and when you decide to expand your business outside of that state, you are required by law to designate a dedicated registered agent for every U.S. state in which your company chooses to operate. Whether it’s bidding on an out–of–state contract opportunity in Michigan or opening a new office in Texas, you will need a registered agent to represent you in each of those states.
A registered agent is an individual or company who agrees to be responsible for receiving all legal notices and documents the state may send to your business. These agents are entrusted to handle some of your company’s most important files – documents that, if mishandled, could result in heavy fines for your company or a loss of good standing in the state. Finding an agent for one state may seem manageable, but consider your long-term goals. As your business grows, finding agents in every state – potentially 50 – can quickly become an unnecessary drain on your precious time and resources.
