Wisconsin Registered Agent

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

What is a Wisconsin registered agent?

A Wisconsin registered agent is an individual or an organization registered or authorized to do business in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Company must name a registered agent and furnish the address of its registered office on their initial state paperwork. A Wisconsin registered agent must have a physical location in Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin resident agent’s address. Also, sending most legal documents by certified mail to the Wisconsin 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 Wisconsin 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.
