What is a Vermont registered agent?
A Vermont registered agent is an individual adult or an organization registered or authorized to do business in Vermont. The Vermont Company must name a registered agent and the address of its registered office on their initial state paperwork. A Vermont registered agent must have a physical location in Vermont and be present at that address during normal business hours. When a business is involved in a legal proceeding a process server will deliver the court papers to that company’s Vermont resident agent’s address. Also, sending the legal documents by certified mail to the Vermont registered agent at the registered office address is legal proof that you have been served, whether you get them or not. Be sure your Vermont registered agent is dependable and professional.
It is the obligation of a Vermont registered agent to have an individual 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 received by the registered agent.
