Tell me the top 5 things I should be looking for in a registered agent?
Practical Knowledge: You want to appoint a registered agent who is competent at what they’re doing, who’s been performing the duties of a registered agent for many years and has a solid track record.
Trustworthy: You need to be able to depend on your registered agent. You need to know that they will live up to their duties and be accessible during regular business hours to receive service of process and other legal paperwork.
Solid Reputation: Your registered agent must have be known for delivering service of process and legal paperwork in a timely and reliable manner. If they accept legal documents on your behalf and don’t deliver them to you, your company could wind up with a ruling against you in court and not even be aware that your business is involved in a lawsuit.
Consumer Relations: 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 talk to a person reading off a script in a call center in India, you want to talk to a customer service rep who actually knows a thing or two about business registered agent service.
Additional Services: In addition to basic registered agent service (by receiving your legal papers), check to see if your registered agent offers more services like: Pre-populated documents for state filings, reminders for important filing dates and deadlines, tools that will keep your business in good standing with the state.
