Resident Agent Services in Reno
Handling a Wide Range of Legal Needs on Behalf of Registered Agents
The role of a resident agent, also known as a registered agent, is a critical one. To form a corporation in Nevada, you are required to appoint a registered agent, which can be either an individual or another corporate entity. The registered agent is responsible for several things; most notably, they handle all services of process, as well as various government correspondence and compliance-related matters.

Appointing a Registered Agent in Nevada
In most cases, at the time you form your corporation, you will be required to select a resident/registered agent who will serve as the primary point of contact for your corporation in regards to services of process (legal mail), acceptance of litigation-related documents, government correspondence, and other related matters. You must appoint a registered agent prior to filing the Articles of Organization that are required to form a corporation with the Nevada Secretary of State.
Requirements for registered agents in the state of Nevada include:
- The registered agent must be a resident of Nevada (if an individual) or have a physical location within the state (if a corporation or entity)
- The registered agent needs to have an actual, physical mailing address (not a P.O. box) where various services of process and other documents can be delivered
- The registered agent must be able to accept and receive services of process and other documents delivered to the physical address
You are allowed to appoint yourself or someone at your business as the resident agent, although it often makes practical sense to appoint a third-party resident agent. A professional third party resident agent will understand the various requirements expected of them and can ensure that you do not incur any penalties due to incompliance with these requirements.
