About Your Nebraska Registered Agent
Let’s talk a little bit about registered agent service in Nebraska.
What is the reason for statutory agents in the first place?
Back in the good old days, you just herded sheep and paid tribute to the lord of the land. Eventually, economies changed, new business forms like limited liability companies and corporations emerged. These various business structures were created to provide tax advantages and protect business owners from liabilities. Business entities are given stature that is separated from the people who start them. Sadly, it didn’t take very much time for people to work out that they could avoid legal actions by personally steering clear of servers of process. So, to close that loophole, most States compel business entities to select a “registered agent.”

Tell me the top 5 things I should be looking for when selecting a registered agent?
Solid Background: You want to hire a registered agent who is competent at what they’re doing, who’s been acting as a registered agent for several years and has a solid reputation.
Trustworthy: You need to be able to depend on your registered agent. You need to know that they will live up to their duties and be available during normal business hours to receive service of process and other legal paperwork.
Solid Character: Your Nebraska registered agent must have be known for forwarding service of process and legal documents in a reliable and timely manner. If they receive legal papers for you and don’t deliver them to you, your business could end up with a judgment against you in court and not even know that your company is party to a lawsuit.
Customer Relations: Just imagine you need to clarify or have a question about some aspect of your company as it relates to the State. You don’t want to talk to someone reading off a script in a call center in some foreign country, you want to chat with a consumer service rep who actually knows a thing or two about business registered agent service.
Optional Services: In addition to basic registered agent service (by receiving your legal papers), check to see if your registered agent offers more services like: Customized documents for your state filings, email reminders for important filing deadlines and due dates, tools that will keep your business in compliance with State law.
