Registered Agent In Massachusetts Info
Let’s talk a little bit about why you need a registered agent in Massachusetts.
Explain it to me; what is a registered agent?
A registered agent, otherwise known as a statutory agent, is an entity located in the state of Massachusetts who is responsible for receiving legal documents for your business. Your registered agent must be present and available during typical business hours.
What are the restrictions or requirements I should know about my statutory agent?
There are few requirements regarding who can be a registered agent here. In particular, the entity or person acting as your registered agent needs to be located and available at an official street address within the state of Massachusetts during normal business hours. They will be responsible to accept all tax-related and legal documents, annual report forms, litigation (service of process) documents, etc., for you. It is important that you choose a solid company, like www.LLC-RegisteredAgent.com when you’re choosing your Massachusetts registered agent.
