ABOUT YOUR COLORADO REGISTERED AGENT
Let’s talk a little bit about registered agent service in Colorado.
Why are there statutory agents in the first place?
Long ago, you just herded sheep and paid your taxes to the lord of the land. Gradually, economies evolved, new company structures like limited liability companies and corporations emerged. These various business structures were created to protect business owners from liabilities and provide tax advantages. Companies are furnished standing that is independent from the person or persons who put them together. Unfortunately, it didn’t take very much time for people to figure out that they could avoid legal actions by personally hiding from process servers. So, to get rid of that loophole, most States compel companies to appoint a “registered agent.”
Are there any requirements or restrictions I should know about my resident agent?
There are only a few requirements about who can act as your registered agent here. In particular, the person or entity acting as your registered agent needs to be located and available at a physical street address within the state of Colorado 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 choose a reliable company, like [site name] when choosing your Colorado registered agent.
