Corporations and Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) are required by state law to have an address where they can receive important legal and tax documents during all business hours. The person or firm receiving these documents is known as the company's "Registered Agent."

For reasons including convenience and reliability, most established businesses choose a third-party Registered Agent (like The Company Corporation) to handle their legal documents.

Documents received by your Registered Agent can include:

  • Service of Process, including notification of a lawsuit or court summons
  • State correspondence, such as annual reports or statements
  • Tax documents

Once the Registered Agent receives your company documents, they quickly forward them to your business, where you or your legal counsel can take timely action on them.
