Florida Registered Agent
A local Florida registered agent is required when forming a business in Florida.
What is a Florida registered agent?
A Florida registered agent is an individual adult or an organization registered or authorized to do business in Florida. The Florida Company must name a registered agent and the address of its registered office on their initial state paperwork. A Florida registered agent must have a physical location in Florida and be present at that address during normal business hours. When a business is involved in a legal proceeding a process server will deliver the court papers to that company’s Florida resident agent’s address. Also, sending the legal documents by certified mail to the Florida registered agent at the registered office address is legal proof that you have been served, whether you get them or not. Be sure your Florida registered agent is dependable and professional.
It is the obligation of a Florida registered agent to have an individual available at the registered office address during normal business hours, for the purpose of receiving, accepting and forwarding to the business any process, notice or demand that is received by the registered agent.
