Registered Agent In Colorado Info

Let’s talk a little bit about registered agent service in Colorado.

Why do we have statutory agents in the first place?

Long ago, you just fought dragons and paid tribute to the king. Gradually, economies evolved, new company structures like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These various business entities were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Companies are furnished standing that is disconnected from the person or persons who form them. Sadly, it didn’t take very much time for owners to work out that they could avoid legal actions by personally steering clear of servers of process. So, to tighten up that loophole, most states compel business entities to appoint a “registered agent.”

Are there any restrictions or requirements I should know about my statutory agent?

There are few requirements about who can be a registered agent in Colorado. In particular, the entity or person acting as your resident agent needs to be located and available at a physical street address within the state of Colorado during normal business hours. Your Registered Agent will be responsible to accept all legal and tax-related documents, annual report forms, litigation (service of process) documents, etc., for you. It is crucial that you designate a solid company, such as when you’re choosing your registered agent.

What are the advantages of having a registered agent in Colorado?
