About Your Pennsylvania Registered Agent
Let’s talk a little bit about why you need a registered agent in Pennsylvania.
Why are there statutory agents in the first place?
Long ago, you just herded sheep and paid your taxes to the king. Gradually, economies changed, new company structures like limited liability companies and corporations emerged. These types of business entities were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Entities are afforded standing that is independent from the person or persons who put them together. Sadly, it didn’t take long for people to understand that they could evade business lawsuits by personally hiding from process servers. So, to tighten up that loophole, most jurisdictions compel companies to select a “registered agent.”
