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