Minnesota Registered Agent

Let’s talk a little bit about finding a registered agent in Minnesota.

What is the reason for statutory agents in the first place?

Back in the good old days, you just tended the farm and paid your taxes to the king. Eventually, economies evolved, new business structures like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These types of business structures were created to protect business owners from liabilities and provide tax advantages. Companies are furnished stature that is independent from the person or persons who start them. Sadly, it didn’t take very much time for people to work out that they could dodge legal actions by personally hiding from servers of process. So, to tighten up that loophole, most jurisdictions require companies to designate a “registered agent.”

Describe the duties of a normal registered agent in Minnesota?

A statutory agent in Minnesota provides a legal address where a person is available during normal business hours. Your registered agent is responsible to receive legal documents and service of process on behalf of your business and then forward this paperwork on to your business. In addition, your registered agent will remind you of important filing due dates like annual report filings and other renewals. An Minnesota registered agent can also check to ensure your company is compliant with the state.
