Pennsylvania Registered Agent

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

What is a Pennsylvania registered agent?

A Pennsylvania registered agent is an individual or an organization registered or authorized to do business in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Company must name a registered agent and furnish the address of its registered office on their initial state paperwork. A Pennsylvania registered agent must have a physical location in Pennsylvania and be present at that address during normal business hours. When a business is involved in a legal proceeding, typically a deputy or a process server will deliver the court papers to that company’s Pennsylvania resident agent’s address. Also, sending the legal documents by certified mail to the Pennsylvania 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 requirement of a Pennsylvania registered 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.
