What is an Iowa Registered Agent?

An Iowa registered agent can be either a business entity or an individual that agrees to accept service of process and official mail for corporations, LLCs and other entities registered in Iowa. In accordance with state law, an Iowa registered agent must have a physical street location in the state, called a registered office, where certified mail can be reliably delivered during regular business hours. When documents are accepted, it is the duty of an Iowa registered agent to contact the client and forward the document to them in a timely manner. This ensures that state courts, as well as the IA Secretary of State, can dependably contact a business entity.
