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