UTAH REGISTERED AGENT
Okay, here’s the scoop about registered agent service in Utah.
Why do we have registered agents in the first place?
Back in the good old days, you just tended the farm and paid tribute to the lord of the land. Gradually, economies changed, new company structures like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These various company structures were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Companies are furnished stature that is independent from the people who form them. Sadly, it didn’t take long for owners to work out that they could stay away from legal actions by personally hiding out from servers of process. So, to get rid of that loophole, most jurisdictions compel business owners to select a “registered agent.”
