Benefits of the Registered Agent service
Satisfy your legal requirement to have a permanent physical office so your business stays in good standing with the state and avoids any penalties or fines.
Many companies with store fronts use a registered agent service to ensure they don’t receive any embarrassing legal or tax notices at your place of business.
Keeps You Organized
As your registered agent, we’ll accept your important legal documents and store them in your dashboard so you can view, download, or print them anytime online.
What is a Registered Agent and why do I need one?
State agencies require LLCs and Corporations to appoint and maintain a Registered Agent when they form their business. The registered agent address acts as the main point of contact between your company and the Secretary of State or other official government office. It will receive service of process, correspondence, and other important legal notices.
A registered agent, by statute, must have a physical location in the same state where the business was formed. This allows the registered agent to properly receive and process legal documents (service of process) on behalf of the company. The registered agent must be available at the registered office address during all normal business hours. Should your registered agent change their name or update their address, they will file and absorb the state filing fees at no cost to their clients (subject to your entity currently being in Good Standing).
ZenBusiness can secure the registered agent and compliance services you need to meet all of these state requirements.
