Let’s talk a little bit about finding a registered agent in Nebraska.

Why are there registered agents in the first place?

Long ago, you just tended the farm and paid your taxes to the lord of the land. Eventually, economies evolved, new company structures like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These various business entities were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Business entities are afforded standing that is disconnected from the people who form them. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for owners to work out that they could evade business lawsuits by personally hiding out from process servers. So, to get rid of that loophole, most jurisdictions require business owners to designate a “registered agent.”

Sum it up for me, who can perform the duties of a registered agent?

Your Nebraska statutory agent should be a company or person who is a legitimate citizen of the state. They must be available to accept legal documents during standard business hours. Nebraska registered agents have to provide a lawful, office address within the state of Nebraska.

How does my company benefit from having a registered agent in Nebraska?
