All states require corporations to have a Registered Agent to ensure that there is a valid address within the state where official and legal correspondence can be delivered. In some states this position is referred to as "Agent For Service of Process".

In some states the Registered Agent is called a "Statutory Agent" because a specific state statute requires the use of a Statutory Agent for the purpose of accepting service of process (legal documents). Some states require that a Statutory Agent sign an agreement which is attached to the application for business formation.

The Registered Agent may be a person or a business which can legally conduct business in the state in which the Corporation or LLC is legally authorized. In either case the Registered Agent must have a physical address within the state.

The Registered Agent receives all official and legal corporate correspondence and forwards them to a designated contact for handling. You can act as your own Registered Agent, however, many Corporations hire an outside Registered Agent to provide a level of privacy. In most states a business entity may not act as its own Registered Agent.

Some states also require Corporations to have a Registered Address within the state.
