About Your Iowa Registered Agent

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

Explain it to me; what is a registered agent?

A registered agent, sometimes referred to as a statutory agent, is an individual located in Iowa who is responsible for accepting legal documents on behalf of your business. Your registered agent must be present and available during standard business hours.

What are the functions of a normal Iowa registered agent?

A statutory agent in the State of Iowa provides a lawful address where a person is present during regular business hours. Your registered agent is responsible to accept delivery of service of process and legal documents on behalf of your company and then forward these documents on to you. In addition, your registered agent will prompt you about important filing cutoff dates like annual report filings and renewals. An Iowa registered agent can also check to ensure your business is in “good standing” with Iowa state law.
