Virtually all states require corporations, limited liability companies (LLC), nonprofits, limited partnerships (LPs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs) formed or foreign qualified there to have a registered agent in the state. The registered agent must be a resident or resident company, have a physical presence and address (no P.O. Boxes allowed) and must be available during normal business hours within the state of registration. The registered agent is responsible for receiving important legal and tax documents on behalf of the business.
Service of Process (sometimes called notice of litigation), which is the document that initiates a lawsuit, is served to the registered agent for a business. Proper handling of and timely response to this document are vital, as not doing so can result in significant adverse consequences to the business. Additionally, the registered agent often receives mail and tax documents from the state on behalf of business. Timely handling of these documents is also important as states typically impose deadlines for annual report and franchise tax payments.
