Having the Right Registered Agent Is Critical to Your Business

Finding the right registered agent in Washington, DC is critically important for your business. District of Columbia law requires business entities doing business in the District to appoint and maintain a registered agent located in DC, and also establishes the legal duties of a registered agent: to receive documents sent to the agent on your behalf and forward those documents to you. The documents involved are essential to your business—papers related to lawsuits and court proceedings, and any official government communications sent to you in care of the agent. It is vital to hire an experienced and reliable agent, so you will receive any such documents promptly. Sadly, we hear stories regularly from people who have missed important deadlines and had to pay extra fees and penalties because their registered agent could not be found or for some reason failed to forward information to their client.
In addition to the duties established by law, the right registered agent can perform other important services for you. For example, the agent can file any papers related to starting or maintaining your business with the appropriate government agency, registering with D.C. Tax and Revenue, and acquiring the appropriate business license for your business. A good registered agent also can help you remain compliant with various legal requirements, such as timely report filing and license renewal. These important tasks are things you want to delegate only to an agent you can trust.
