Arizona Registered Agent

What is a statutory agent?

Generally, a Statutory Agent, or Registered Agent, is an individual or a business entity that the corporation, limited partnership or LLC appoints for the purpose of accepting service of process (lawsuit papers or legal documents) for the entity. The agent is called a “statutory” agent because a statute requires that the entity appoint someone for this purpose. If, for example, a lawsuit is filed against the entity, the Statutory Agent will be the one who is served (receives the papers on behalf of the entity), and then the Statutory Agent provides the papers to the entity.

The law requires that corporations, partnerships and LLCs maintain a statutory agent with a valid Arizona street address (not a P.O. Box or personal mail box) on the records of the state’s Secretary of State and/or Arizona Corporation Commission at all times. Failure to do so will subject the entity to being administratively dissolved.
