About Your Alaska Registered Agent
Let’s talk a little bit about why you need a registered agent in Alaska.
Why do we have resident agents in the first place?
When I was a kid, you just tended the farm and paid tribute to the king. Gradually, economies changed, new company structures like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These types of company structures were created to protect business owners from liabilities and provide tax advantages. Companies are furnished standing that is separated from the individuals who start them. Sadly, it didn’t take very much time for owners to understand that they could stay away from business lawsuits by personally hiding out from process servers. So, to close that loophole, most jurisdictions compel business owners to appoint a “registered agent.”
