Registered Agent In Indiana
Let me tell you about why you need a registered agent in Indiana.
Why do we have registered agents in the first place?
When I was a kid, you just tended the farm and paid your taxes to the king. Eventually, economies evolved, new company structures like limited liability companies and corporations emerged. These types of business structures were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Entities are furnished status that is disconnected from the individuals who form them. Unfortunately, it didn’t take very much time for owners to work out that they could dodge business lawsuits by personally hiding out from process servers. So, to tighten up that loophole, most States compel companies to appoint a “registered agent.”
Describe the job of a normal registered agent in Indiana?
A statutory agent in Indiana furnishes a legitimate address where someone is available during standard business hours. Your registered agent is accountable to accept delivery of legal documents and service of process on behalf of your company and then forward this paperwork on to you. In addition, your Indiana registered agent will remind you about important filing cutoff dates like annual report forms and other renewals. An Indiana registered agent can also check to verify your business is in conformance with Indiana business codes.
