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