Registered Agent Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What is a Registered Agent?

    Every state requires a Corporation or an LLC to have a Registered Agent (sometimes called a resident agent, statutory agent, or agent for service of process). The Registered Agent address is the address that will be used by the state for any official legal and tax correspondence. The Registered Agent address must be a physical, in-state street address; P.O. Boxes are not acceptable. NOTE: If you require us to provide a registered agent, the address cannot be used as a general business/mail forwarding address. Only official legal and tax correspondence from the state will be forwarded, and any other mailings to the registered agent will not be accepted.

  • Can I use the registered agent address as my company address?

    No. If you require us to provide a registered agent, the address cannot be used as a general business/mail forwarding address. Only official legal and tax correspondence from the state will be forwarded, and any other mailings to the registered agent will not be accepted.

  • Why would I need Registered Agent services in more than one state?

    A company that has multiple locations in multiple states needs to register with each state (other than the original state of formation/registration) as a foreign entity, and each of these states will require a registered agent for each foreign corporation or LLC.

    Many of our clients have multiple companies in multiple states, and each one requires a separate registered agent.

  • I have multiple companies in one state. Do I just need to order one Registered Agent?

    Each separate company for which you need a registered agent services will require a new order. You will be able to manage all of your orders through one convenient online control panel.

  • Do you only provide Registered Agent services for corporations and LLCs?

    No. There are other entities that are required by the state to maintain a registered agent, such as non-profit corporations, associations, LLPs, etc. We can provide registered agent services for any of these.

  • Can USA-REGISTEREDAGENT provide Registered Agent services in more than one state?

    Yes we provide Registered Agent services in all 50 states and Washington D.C.

  • What purpose does a Registered Agent serve?

    A Registered Agent will act as the representative for accepting Service of Process served upon the company within the jurisdiction of any state where the company conducts business, and will also forward any other official legal and tax correspondence from the state.

  • What will happen if my company fails to register or designate and maintain a Registered Agent?

    Failing to register and designate a registered agent may foreclose or hinder the company's ability to legally enter into contracts and gain access to the state courts. Moreover, it may subject the company to monetary, civil, and possibly criminal sanctions. Also, failure to maintain a registered agent may cause your company to fall out of "good standing" within the state. This will subject your license to do business within a state to forfeiture, with monetary penalties assessed to reinstate your company to a "good standing" again.

  • How do I obtain the registered agent address once I apply for your company's services?

    Once you have placed your order for registered agent services you will receive a confirmation e-mail from us. The confirmation e-mail will contain a confirmation link back to your account control panel within our site. The address of the registered agent for the company associated with your order will be listed there.

    NOTE: The registered agent information provided is only valid for one company per each order. Multiple companies within the same state will require a new order for registered agent services for each company.

  • What if the documents I have require the signature of the registered agent?

    Many states handle this issue in different ways. Some states, such as Nevada and New Mexico, require a separate acceptance form. In this case, we have these forms on file and will e-mail them to you in PDF format.

    Some states, such as Maryland and Connecticut, require the signature of the agent directly on the formation documents. In this case you should fax the form to us at (866) 497-5298, and we will provide the signature and return the document to you. You may also scan and e-mail the document to info@usa-registeredagent.com.

    Most states, however, do not require the signature of the agent. In states such as California, New Jersey, Florida, Texas, et al, all you need to do is add the provided agent address to the formation documents and file with the state.

  • Once my order is placed what do I need to do in order to designate or reassign my companies registered agent?

    Upon placing your order, you may use the name and address of your designated registered agent which can be accessed by logging into your account to complete any state documents which need to be filed and submitted to the respective Secretary of State if the form needs to be signed by the registered agent email or fax the completed form to us and we will have them signed and returned to you via email unless the state requires an original signature, in this event the signed document will be mailed to your forwarding address. (Please note that we are a solely a provider of the registered agent services and will not facilitate or incur the cost of filing the documents required to transfer from your current registered agent to the one provided by us, as these fees vary and in some cases exceed the annual fee we charge for our services)
