Maine Registered Agent
Maine registered agents are required when registering to do business in Maine.
What is a Maine Registered Agent?
A Maine registered agent is a business that is listed on your corporate paperwork with the state as responsible for accepting legal notices on your behalf. Maine registered agents must have a real physical location in Maine and be present at that address during normal business hours. Although most of the time a sheriff or process server will be delivering the notice to the Maine resident agents address, mailing a letter to the person or business listed as the Maine registered agent at the Maine registered office address is legal proof that you have been notified, regardless of whether or not you received the notice.
The Maine registered agents duty is to be available at the business address listed as the ME registered office address during normal business hours. Any mail from the state that has been returned to them will be sent to the Maine resident agents address.
What types of businesses are required to have Maine Registered Agents?
A Maine LLC, out of state LLC, a Maine corporation, an out of state corporation, a non-profit corporation or organization, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, or any other Maine business entity is required to have a Maine registered agent and Maine registered office.
