Nationwide Registered Agent Services & Requirements

Service of Process, Annual Report, Tax Notices and More

 

Volume discounts apply for multiple states and entities. SunDoc Filings offers Registered Agent Services in all 50 states. Most states require a Registered Agent other than the home office or place of business.  The Registered Agent is responsible for important legal and tax documents on behalf of incorporated companies, such as the following:

  • Service of Process
  • Important state mail, such as annual reports or statements
  • Tax notices – annual or otherwise

With SunDoc Filings, you also have secure access to your corporate information, customized reporting tools and service of process history.  Accessing our private network is easy and secure with your own User Name and Password.  You can access more tools and resources from any location 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Contact us today to learn how we can assist you with your registered agent and corporate service needs.  Call our customer service representatives at 888.595.2747.

The registered agent must have a physical address (not a post office box) in the state of incorporation or qualification and must be available at that address during normal business hours.

 

SunDoc Filings has acted as Registered Agent for thousands of entities since 1999. Our skilled customer service staff is always ready to help.

The Stakes Can be High

 

Service of Process is the first document that can initiate a lawsuit. If your company fails to respond, you risk a default judgment against your company, and full damages can be awarded by a judge. We notify you by email of any Service of Process that has been served to us as your agent. You can access it online and can easily forward it to your legal counsel.

What does a Registered Agent do?

A Registered Agent accepts service of process on behalf of the company and immediately forwards the service of process to either the company, or if preferred, the company’s attorney. In addition, the Registered Agent will forward correspondence from the state filing agency, state tax agency, and the Internal Revenue Service directly to your company.

Why would the company ever get service of process?

If the company is sued, the plaintiff's attorney (for civil suits) or the court for other legal pleadings will have a Process Server serve the company’s Registered Agent notice of the lawsuit. A company may also receive legal notices regarding company's employees such as demands for child support, wage disclosures, or wage garnishment.

I thought the corporation/LLC/LP is a separate legal entity. Why does it require a Registered Agent?

Even though a corporation/LLC/LP is a separate entity, it cannot answer the door and physically accept the court document in its hand. Therefore, state filing agencies require that a corporation designates a Registered Agent to receive service of process on the company's behalf.
