What is a New Hampshire registered agent?
A New Hampshire registered agent can be either an organization or a person. You list the registered agent name and address on your corporate paperwork with the state. The New Hampshire registered agent is responsible for receiving registration renewal notices and legal notices on your behalf, and forwarding them to your organization. New Hampshire registered agents must have a physical location in New Hampshire and be present at that address during normal business hours. Most of the time a deputy or process server will deliver the legal service of process to the New Hampshire resident agent's address. Occasionally court papers will arrive by certified mail to the New Hampshire registered agent at the registered office address and that will be acceptable legal proof that you have been served, whether or not your registered agent delivers the legal notice to your company.
The New Hampshire registered agent's primary function is to be available at the address listed as the NH registered office address during regular business hours. All official documents from the state will be sent to the New Hampshire resident agent's address.
