Registered Agent In New Jersey Info

Here’s the low-down about registered agent service in New Jersey.

What is a registered agent?

A registered agent, also known as a statutory agent, is an entity with a physical location in the state of New Jersey who is responsible for receiving legal documents on your behalf. Your registered agent must be available and present during standard business hours.

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

There are few restrictions regarding who can act as a registered agent in New Jersey. Specifically, the entity or person acting as your registered agent needs to be located and available at an official street address within New Jersey during normal business hours. Your registered agent will be responsible to accept all legal and tax-related documents, annual report forms, litigation (service of process) documents, etc., on your behalf. It is critical that you appoint a solid company, like when you’re choosing your registered agent.

How can I choose my registered agent?

Normally you would choose your resident agent as part of your company formation documents; your articles of incorporation or articles of organization. If you’re just getting your business started, we can assist you with that. If you already appointed a resident agent but you’re shopping around for a better alternative, we can help you with that too. Of course, whether you’re just getting started or are ready to make a change, the best way is to sign up for our registered agent service.
