Tell me the top 5 things I should be looking for in a registered agent?
Solid Background: You want to hire a registered agent who knows what they’re doing, who’s been performing the duties of a registered agent for several years and has a solid track record.
Dependability: You need to be able to depend on your registered agent. You should be able to trust that they will fulfill their duties and be accessible during typical business hours to accept service of process and other legal paperwork.
Reputation: Your Missouri registered agent must have be known for forwarding legal paperwork and service of process in a timely and reliable manner. If they receive legal papers on your behalf and fail to deliver them to you, your business could wind up with a judgment against you in court and not even be aware that your company is involved in a lawsuit.
Customer Service: What if you need to clarify or have a question about some aspect of your business as it relates to the State. You don’t want to discuss it with someone reading off a script in a call center in some foreign country, you want to chat with a customer service rep who actually knows a thing or two about commercial registered agent service in Missouri.
Optional Services: Besides basic registered agent service (by accepting your legal papers), check to see if your registered agent offers more services like: Customized paperwork for your state filings, reminders for important filing dates and deadlines, tools that will keep your company in good standing with the state.
