Arizona Registered Agent
Let’s talk a little bit about getting a registered agent in Arizona.
What is the reason for registered agents in the first place?
When I was a kid, you just fought dragons and paid your taxes to the king. Gradually, economies changed, new business structures like limited liability companies and corporations emerged. These types of business entities were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Companies are afforded stature that is independent from the person or persons who form them. Unfortunately, it didn’t take very much time for people to work out that they could dodge legal actions by personally hiding from servers of process. So, to close that loophole, most states require companies to designate a “registered agent.”
Briefly, who can act as a registered agent?
Your Arizona statutory agent needs to be a business entity or individual who is a legal resident of Arizona. They should be available to receive service of process during normal business hours. Registered agents in Arizona have to provide a lawful, office address within the state.
