What is a Registered Agent, Why Do I Need One?

In United States business law, a registered agent, also known as a resident agent or statutory agent, is a business or individual designated to receive service of process when a business entity is a party in a legal action.

A registered agent is a responsible third-party in the same state as the business, the registered agent can be in contact with Secretary of State or other official government departments on behalf of the INC or LLC when it is needed.

You will need a registered agent if you are a Non-US resident.

If you are a US resident, you can be your own registered agent as long as you know what to do.
