Registered Agents

Registered agents are required for businesses because they provide a physical location where a human being can accept service (lawsuits and official papers from the state or taxation departments) on behalf of the company during business hours. The business owner can act as his or her own registered agent, but it may be difficult to ensure someone is available either in the office or at home during business hours year-round. There are a number of commercial registered agent services but some business owners prefer to have their lawyer serve as registered agent so that a lawsuit can be addressed more quickly.
