What's a registered agent (RA) and why have one?

As a business owner, you get important legal documents in the mail, or sometimes court notices in person. In most states, you're required to have an RA to receive papers. Here's why having us as your RA is beneficial:

It helps you avoid fines

Ensure you receive timely notices about critical state filing deadlines—so you can stay in good standing and keep penalties at bay.

It frees up your time

Acting as your own RA requires you to always be available during normal business hours to receive documents. By appointing us, we can do this for you.

It adds a layer of privacy

Your RA address is public record. That means in the event of a lawsuit, your RA can receive court documents on your behalf—and you could potentially avoid being served in front of your customers and employees.
