About Your Registered Agent in Colorado
Okay, here’s the scoop about registered agent service in Colorado.
What is the reason for registered agents in the first place?
Long ago, you just fought dragons and paid your taxes to the lord of the land. Eventually, economies evolved, new company structures like corporations and limited liability companies emerged. These types of business structures were created to protect business owners from liabilities and provide tax advantages. Business entities are furnished standing that is separated from the people who start them. Unfortunately, it didn’t take very much time for owners to work out that they could avoid litigation by personally steering clear of process servers. So, to get rid of that loophole, most jurisdictions compel companies to designate a “registered agent.”
What are the requirements or restrictions I should know about my registered agent?
There are only a few restrictions relating to who can act as your registered agent here in Colorado. Specifically, the person or entity acting as your resident agent must be located and available at a physical street address within Colorado during normal business hours. They will be responsible to receive all tax-related and legal documents, annual report forms, litigation (service of process) documents, etc., on your behalf. It is critical that you choose a solid company, like RegisteredAgentService.net when choosing your registered agent.
