What is a Registered Agent, and Why Do I Need One?
In order to file your LLC, you are required by law to appoint a Registered Agent.
A Registered Agent (or RA) is a person or company designated to receive official mail on behalf of a business — your business. The registered agent must be legally allowed to do business in the state.
RAs are required in many states, so that the LLC can physically receive mail or legal documents.
When an individual, government agency, or process server wants to formally contact a business, they consult the registered agent information on file and send mail or legal documents to the business’s registered agent. This is especially relevant for out-of-state LLC owners who cannot be in-state to receive the court paperwork.
When we receive these documents on behalf of our clients, LLCTLC forwards all relevant documentation in a timely manner.
Business insurance and other protection is always advised for LLC owners. If you have questions about what type of protections you need to have in place, a corporate lawyer can advise you.
