What is an Arizona Registered Agent?
An Arizona registered agent is an individual or business legally appointed on a company’s formation documents to accept service of process on behalf of the company should it be sued. What does that mean? Basically this: an Arizona registered agent receives official mail and notices on behalf of a business in Arizona. We’re the legal contact for businesses that appoint us to receive their official documents (tax and annual report notices) from the state, as well as legal materials like law suits should the business be sued. Once we receive a notice for a business, we scan and upload the document to their online account within minutes of receipt.
