What is a Montana Registered Agent?

A Montana 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 Montana. In accordance with state law, a Montana 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 a Montana 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 ML Secretary of State, can dependably contact a business entity.
