Montana Registered Agent

A local Montana registered agent is required when forming a business in Montana.

What is a Montana registered agent?

A Montana registered agent can be either another business or an individual that is listed on your corporate paperwork with the state as responsible for accepting legal notices on your behalf. Montana registered agents must have a real physical location in Montana, not a post office box, and be present at that address during normal business hours. Generally a sheriff deputy or process server will deliver the legal notice to the Montana resident agent’s address. Also, mailing the service of process by certified mail to the person or business listed as the Montana registered agent at the registered office address is legal proof that you have been notified, regardless of whether or not your registered agent delivers it to you.

The Montana registered agent’s duty is to be present at the business address listed as the MT registered office address during normal business hours. Any official documents from the state will be sent to the Montana resident agent’s address.
