Choosing a Registered Agent

Another hurdle for new businesses, especially if it is a corporation, LLC or nonprofit, is the appointment of a registered agent. The registered agent is an individual or business entity that can receive service of process as well as compliance documents on behalf of the business. This is especially handy if you run an online business or have limited office space. Some of the oficial mail a registered agent can receive includes official federal and state correspondence, tax notices, wage garnishment notices and more.

The registered agent acts as your business’ main point of contact and choosing one should be done with care. TRUiC research provides the best evaluation and review service in the industry. It points out that some of the best registered agent services are:

What makes a good registered agent?

When forming a business or registering to do business in any state appointing a registered agent is required. Certain state licenses also require the appointment of a registered agent, however the registered agent’s responsibilities do not end with simply accepting official documents on your behalf. The agent is responsible for delivering the documents to the business owner promptly. Should an agent neglect this simple action the possibility exists that the business owner can lose a lawsuit through default, or be subject to court sanctions if a subpoena is ignored.

The registered agent should be reputable with a track record for providing registered agent services. When in doubt, many states’ business filing departments often maintain a database of service providing registered agents for the area.
