Registered Agent for LLC

Asked by: joe martello - 8 February, 2012 I am forming an LLC is it neccesary for me to have a registered agent?
Answered by: Alec Green - 9 February, 2012 Joe,

When forming an LLC (or any other legal entity for that matter), you are required to designate an individual or a company located in the state of formation as the registered agent (also called resident agent). With an exception of New York State, where by default the Secretary of State serves as the registered agent, this rule applies in all states and DC.

It is typically recommended to maintain a commercial registered agent for your company for several reasons, one being the fact that such agent has to be constantly present at the registered office during business hours, a condition that is usually very difficult for an individual to satisfy.
