If you’re like many aspiring business owners, you’ve never heard of a Registered Agent. Well, a registered agent is a responsible third-party in the same state as your business. This third-party can receive official government notifications (usually tax forms and notice of lawsuits) on behalf of your LLC.
You’re actually required to have a Registered Agent if your business doesn’t have a physical location in the state in which it’s registered. That state needs to know it always has a physical contact person.
But don’t dismiss this as optional if the above scenario doesn’t apply to you. Registered Agents come with numerous advantages.
#1 NEVER MISS IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS
Like we mentioned above, a Registered Agent accepts official documents on your behalf, which are usually time-sensitive, requiring immediate action or signatures. If you run a home-based business or are rarely in the office…how can you take the required action? With a Registered Agent, you never have to worry about missing an important document.
#2 AVOID EMBARRASSMENT
There are few things more embarrassing than accepting legal or tax documents in front of your clients. Being served a subpoena or a tax notice doesn’t look good and calls into question your integrity, even if you’re innocent. A Registered Agent protects your image by receiving these sensitive notices on your behalf.
#3 EASILY CHANGE YOUR BUSINESS LOCATION
As your business grows and expands, you’ll need a bigger office space and while this is exciting, it’s also frustrating because it means having to change your address with the state. With a Registered Agent, you can move as much as you want while your mailing address remains the same.
#4 ADD CREDIBILITY TO YOUR BUSINESS
Image is everything in the business world. Using your home address or a P.O. Box can at best make you look unprofessional, and at worst…fraudulent. With a Registered Agent you get a professional business address that affirms your credibility and instill confidence in your clients.
