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