California Registered Agent Services
Learn more about Registered Agent Services
URA offers registered agent services in all 50 states, including California. Registered agents are required for every entity type in all states.
A California registered agent serves as a third-party representative within the state and receives correspondence from the Secretary of state, service of process documents, and official notifications from the government, such as notice of lawsuits or tax forms, for the LLC or corporation. They accept and forward this correspondence to the entity it represents.
All states, including California, now require a business owner or operator to name a registered agent.
A California registered agent’s primary function is to accept service of process. In the event that you or your business is sued or involved in legal proceedings, legal documents will need to be officially served to notify you of impending court proceedings. This is almost always done in person by a process server.
The notification has to be done in an official manner to provide proof to the court that you were notified and allow for due process. Typically, these legal documents include a summons and a complaint. Once the registered agent accepts the service, he or she will then notify you as the business owner.
The individual must be available during business hours to accept the service in order to fulfill their duties and their name and address will be published with your company information.
