Kentucky Registered Agent

A local Kentucky registered agent is required when registering to do business in Kentucky.

What is a Kentucky registered agent?

A Kentucky registered agent can be either an organization or an individual that you list on your corporate paperwork with the state. The Kentucky registered agent is responsible for receiving annual report notices and legal notices on your behalf, and forwarding them to your organization. Kentucky registered agents must have a physical location in Kentucky and be present at that address during normal business hours. Usually a sheriff’s deputy or process server will deliver a law suit to the Kentucky resident agent’s address. It is also common for court papers to be delivered by certified mail to the Kentucky registered agent at the registered office address and that will be legal proof that you have been served, whether or not your registered agent delivers the legal notice to your company.

The Kentucky registered agent’s task is to be available at the address listed as the KY registered office address during regular business hours. Important documents from the state will be sent to the Kentucky resident agent’s address.
