A registered agent is required for all formal business entities, such as LLCs, partnerships, corporations, etc. Your registered agent must be present during business hours to receive and manage state correspondence on your behalf. You will need a registered agent in every state your company does business in. Attempting to file paperwork without naming a registered agent will likely result in rejection of the application. Our customers love our registered agent service to keep things simple!
Compliance requirements vary by state and company type. Our Complete Compliance service takes care of your annual filing and other updates requested by your state for your business.
