Tell me the top 5 things I should be looking for when selecting a registered agent?
Solid Background: You want to appoint a registered agent who is competent at what they’re doing, who’s been performing the duties of a registered agent for a few years and has a solid reputation.
Trustworthy: You need to be able to depend on your registered agent. You need to know that they will live up to their duties and be accessible during normal business hours to receive legal documents and service of process.
Character: Your Florida registered agent must have be known for forwarding legal paperwork and service of process in a reliable and timely manner. If they receive legal documents on your behalf and don’t deliver them to you, your business could end up with a decision against you in court without even knowing your business is party to a lawsuit.
Consumer Relations: What if you need to clarify or have a question about some aspect of your company as it relates to the State. You don’t want to talk to a person reading off a script in a call center in India, you want to talk to a customer service rep who actually knows a thing or two about business registered agent service.
Optional Services: In addition to basic registered agent service (by receiving your legal documents), make sure your registered agent offers more services like: Pre-populated documents for state filings, email reminders for important filing deadlines and due dates, tools that will keep your company in compliance with State law.
