What is a Registered Agent?
A registered agent acts on a company’s behalf in receiving legal documents such as Service of Process (i.e., Lawsuits, Liens, Subpoenas, etc.) and other mailings from regulatory agencies. In some jurisdictions, a registered agent may be referred to as a resident agent or statutory agent.
A registered agent must maintain a physical presence (street address) within the state and be available during all business hours so that consumers may properly serve claims upon a company. A post office box (PO Box) does not constitute a physical presence by statutory requirements.
