Highest Rated Registered Agent ServiceGet Registered
Virtually all states require corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), nonprofits, limited partnerships (LPs) and limited liability partnerships (LLPs) to appoint a Registered Agent in the state where the company is formed and any other state in which is transacting business. The Registered Agent is responsible for receiving important legal and tax documents on behalf of the company including: Service of Process (notice of litigation), franchise tax forms, and annual report forms. The Registered Agent may be an individual or it may be a company approved by the state to serve as agent. It must be located at a street address (not a P.O. Box) in the state where the company is formed or qualified. The Registered Agent's name and address are included on the formation documents. This information is a matter of public record. Appointing Rapid Registered Agent, LLC as your Registered Agent provides your company the assurance that this important service is handled correctly and efficiently.
Service of Process (SOP), also sometimes called notice of litigation, is the legal term for the delivery of copies of legal documents such as summons, complaints, subpoenas, orders to show cause, writs, notices to quit the premises and certain other documents. As your Registered Agent, we accept these legal notices on your behalf, rather than having law enforcement officials serve you these documents at your place of business in front of employees and/or customers.
Every Service of Process (SOP) we receive is handled promptly and with the utmost professionalism. When we receive an SOP, we scan the documents and immediately send them to you via email. Electronic delivery of SOP is not only faster than mail forwarding, but also enables easy distribution of the document to in-house or external legal counsel as needed. Notices are also sent out (optionally) via text-message and/or fax at no additional charge! If you want the original, it can be sent to you for the cost of the mailing plus a $5 handling charge. Additionally, government taxation documents, annual reports and other important state mail which is sent to us will be scanned and forwarded it to you. Junk mail will be thrown out. Regular business mail should not be sent to us and will not be forwarded (i.e. don't use our address for your mailing address).
