YOU MUST UPDATE YOUR REGISTERED AGENT FOR YOUR BUSINESS
If you are a Corporation, LLC, Limited Partnership, Limited Liability Partnership, you have to file an annual report and you have to update your “registered agent” this year. A registered agent is simply a person or entity appointed to “accept service of process” and official mail on your business’ behalf. You can appoint yourself or your company attorney. The registered agent requirement came about as an aspect of due process. A lawsuit against your business cannot move forward in court without your business being properly notified first. The registered agent must have a physical address within that state and be available during business hours so someone suing you can easily find you. This requirement gives the court an easy way to notify you. This also eliminates the possibility of big corporations hiding behind 1000’s of employees. The registered agent is your business’ point of contact with the state and for service of process. The theory behind the requirements of the listed registered agent is to ensure your business maintains a reliable way to be contacted. It does not make the registered agent the person that is being sued. The registered agent is only responsible for accepting communications and passing them on to the responsible people in your company.
