Why You Need An Idaho Registered Agent
Most states require business entities to have registered agents, but even if your state doesn’t, you should strongly consider getting one. Today we will be looking at Idaho Registered Agents.
What Is a Registered Agent?
A registered agent is a responsible third-party who is registered in the same state in which a business entity was established and who is designated to receive service of process notices, correspondence from the Secretary of State, and other official government notifications, usually tax forms and notice of lawsuits, on behalf of the corporation or LLC.
Why Do I Need an Idaho Registered Agent?
If you do not have a physical location in the state in which your business is registered, you must select a registered agent to accept documents on your behalf. The state in which your business is registered needs to know it has a contact person for your business within the state at all times.
What Does a Idaho Registered Agent Do?
A registered agent accepts tax and legal documents on behalf of your business. This includes important information regarding tax payments, lawsuits, or judgments involving your business.
What Are the Benefits of Having a Registered Agent?
Besides not worrying about missing important documents, having a registered agent also means that you will not have to accept potentially embarrassing legal and tax documents in front of clients.
More Information from the Idaho Secretary of State
You can, as an individual, act as your own registered agent if you have an Idaho physical address. Or, you may use another legal business entity who is filed with our office with an Idaho physical address, but not your own entity.
The Secretary of State’s Office does not, by publishing this list, endorse any of these providers or imply that they are preferred to others that are not listed. The list is provided solely for the convenience of businesses seeking registered agent representation.
To provide registered agent service in Idaho, you must be an individual who can be located at a physical address in the state, or a business entity who is filed with the Secretary of State’s office to transact business in Idaho and have a physical office in the state. Assumed Business Name entities cannot function as registered agents since they are not considered to be legal entities in their own right under Idaho statute.
