Registered Agent

What is a Registered Agent?

A registered agent is an individual or entity designated by a corporation, nonprofit, or LLC to receive service of process, tax notices or information, and other necessary correspondence.

The Importance of a Registered Agent

Required by law

Corporate laws require a registered agent in nearly every state. In New York, the Secretary of State acts as an agent, but a contact address still must be supplied for the service of process.

National Coverage

Corp1 provides registered agent services in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.


Your registered agent is available at the designated address to receive the process during business hours when you may not be.


No business wants the sheriff or process server showing up at their place of business and serving legal documents to their staff in front of their customers.

Timely and Accurate

Corp1 communicates and forwards all process and notices, ensuring reliable and timely communication.

Corp1 Annual Report and Corporate Transparency Act Services powered by SingleFile

Most states require an annual report. Requirements and due dates vary by state, but that is where we come in. Our annual report service identifies and tracks annual report deadlines for all U.S. states and the District of Columbia. As the deadline approaches, the system sends up to four reminders with links to our simplified online filing workflow.

Beginning January 1, 2024, all new entities must file a Beneficial Ownership Information Report (BOIR) with the US Dept. of Treasury, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). This BOIR must identify the beneficial owners and anyone with “substantial control” of the reporting company. They also must identify two “company applicants” involved in forming the entity within 30 days after receiving notice of its creation or registration. Existing companies have one year to file until January 1, 2025. Click here to determine if your company may need to file a BOIR.
