More About Your Indiana Registered Agent

Let me tell you about registered agent service in Indiana.

What is the reason for registered agents in the first place?

Back in the good old days, you just fought dragons and paid tribute to the lord of the land. Eventually, economies evolved, new business structures like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These various company structures were created to protect business owners from liabilities and provide tax advantages. Entities are furnished standing that is independent from the individuals who start them. Sadly, it didn’t take long for people to work out that they could evade litigation by personally steering clear of servers of process. So, to tighten up that loophole, most Secretaries of State compel business entities to appoint a “registered agent.”

Are there any restrictions or requirements I should know about my registered agent?

There are few requirements regarding who can act as your registered agent in Indiana. Specifically, the entity or person acting as your resident agent needs to be located and available at a physical street address within Indiana during typical business hours. They 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 appoint a reliable company, such as when choosing your registered agent.
