About Your Minnesota Registered Agent

Let me tell you about finding a registered agent in Minnesota.

Why do we have resident agents in the first place?

Long ago, you just fought dragons and paid tribute to the lord of the land. Eventually, economies changed, new business structures like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These various company structures were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Business entities are given standing that is disconnected from the people who form them. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for owners to understand that they could evade business lawsuits by personally hiding from servers of process. So, to close that loophole, most states require companies to designate a “registered agent.”

What are the requirements or restrictions I should know about my statutory agent?

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

What are the advantages of having a registered agent?
