Minnesota Registered Agent

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

What is a Minnesota registered agent?

A Minnesota registered agent is an individual or an organization registered or authorized to do business in Minnesota. The Minnesota business must name a registered agent and furnish the address of its registered office on their initial state paperwork. A Minnesota registered agent must have a physical location in Minnesota and be present at that address during normal business hours. When a business is sued, typically a deputy or process server will deliver the court papers to that company’s Minnesota resident agent’s address. Also, sending many legal documents by certified mail to the Minnesota registered agent at the registered office address is sufficient legal proof that you have been served, whether you ever receive them or not.

It is the duty of a Minnesota resident agent to have someone 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 delivered to the registered agent.
