Most U.S. jurisdictions require entities that do business within their borders to designate and maintain a Registered Agent, also known as a “Statutory Agent. The Registered/Statutory Agent provides a legal address within the jurisdiction where legal documents (also known as “Service of Process”) may be served during business hours. It is the Registered Agent’s duty to receive and forward that service of process to the entity’s designated contact, usually the company’s legal team or company President.
The Registered Agent also receives official government documents, including Franchise Tax notices and Annual Report Forms. Registered Agents may also notify business entities whether or not they are in “good standing” with the Secretary of State’s office or, in Arizona, with the Arizona Corporation Commission.
