What is a Registered Agent? A registered agent is an entity physically located in a state where a foreign company wishes to transact business. Virtually all states, includingMassachusetts, require corporations and LLCs to appoint a registered agent in the state where the corporation wishes to transact business. The responsibilities of a registered agent include receiving important legal and tax documents. These documents can be notice of litigation, franchise tax forms, and annual report forms. Not only do foreign entities require a registered agent, but also domestic entities may choose to retain a registered agent to ensure that legal notices and correspondence are properly received, annual filings are completed, and materials are forwarded timely to the appropriate contact within the corporate entity. Appointing NorthShore Paralegal Services, Inc. as your registered agent assures your company that this important service will be handled accurately and efficiently.
