Mississippi Registered Agent
A local Mississippi registered agent is required when forming a business in Mississippi.
What is a Mississippi registered agent?
A Mississippi registered agent is an individual or an organization registered or authorized to do business in Mississippi. The Mississippi Company must name a registered agent and furnish the address of its registered office on their initial state paperwork. A Mississippi registered agent must have a physical location in Mississippi 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 Mississippi resident agent’s address. Also, sending most legal documents by certified mail to the Mississippi registered agent at the registered office address is legal proof that you have been served, whether you ever receive them or not.
It is the required function of a Mississippi 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.
