REGISTERED AGENT IN INDIANA
Let me tell you about why you need a registered agent in Indiana.
Why do we have resident agents in the first place?
Back in the good old days, you just fought dragons and paid tribute to the king. Eventually, economies evolved, new business forms like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These various business entities were created to protect business owners from liabilities and provide tax advantages. Companies are given stature that is disconnected from the person or persons who form them. Unfortunately, it didn’t take very much time for people to work out that they could avoid legal actions by personally steering clear of servers of process. So, to get rid of that loophole, most Secretaries of State compel business owners to select a “registered agent.”
What are the restrictions or requirements I should know about my statutory agent?
There are only a few restrictions concerning who can act as your registered agent in Indiana. Specifically, the person or entity acting as your registered agent must be located and available at a physical street address within Indiana during normal business hours. Your Registered Agent will be responsible to receive all tax-related and legal documents, annual report forms, litigation (service of process) documents, etc., on your behalf. It is critical that you choose a solid company, such as [site name] when choosing your Indiana registered agent.
