What is a registered agent?
If you own and/or run a small business, chances are your state requires you to have a registered agent—most do. But even if your state doesn't, strongly consider getting one. A registered agent is a responsible third-party in the same state as the business, who can receive service of process notices, correspondence from the Secretary of State, and other official government notifications—usually tax forms and notice of lawsuits—on behalf of the corporation or LLC.
What does a registered agent do?
When you form your company, the state in which your business is registered requires you to have a registered agent to provide a legal address (PO boxes are not acceptable addresses for registered agents) within that jurisdiction to accept important mail and legal documents on behalf of your company and facilitate legal services of process being served in the event of a legal action or lawsuit, at a registered office physically located in the State of your company creation.
Basically, a registered agent is the person to whom the state government sends documents to contact you, It is the registered agent's job to make sure you don't miss important mail for your company address which is lawsuits or judgments involving your business. Registered agents will generally forward these documents and notices to the entity itself and also notify business entities whether their state government filing status is in "good standing" or not when it's asked for.
can you be your own registered agent?
Legally, it’s allowed for a company to serve as its own registered agent. However, If you act as your own agent, you won't have the flexibility to close your office freely or go on vacation...etc. Generally, having a professional registered agent saves you from potentially being served with legal papers in front of your clients and gives you the peace of mind that someone will always be available to claim such important information during standard business hours, without having to worry about missing any deliveries, and you will also appreciate having someone to track and notify you of annual reports being due and other filings that you may have to periodically file.
the risks of not designating one?
If you don’t hire a registered agent and take charge of this task by yourself, you risk falling out of "good standing" with the state. Penalties could include license revocation, fines, and the inability to enter into legal contracts and / or access to the state court system in case of not respecting summons to appear in court to respond to a lawsuit due to not properly receiving the judicial appeal.
what are the benefits of having a third-party as your registered agent?
A registered agent can be vital to your business in the sense that they remind you of important deadlines and complete the paperwork for you, they also alleviate you and give your company the assurance that the critical documents are handled correctly and efficiently.
