What is a Delaware Registered Agent?

A Delaware registered agent is a business entity’s contact with the Division of Corporations. Registered agents receive legal notices, such as service of process, and correspondence from the state of Delaware, such as Franchise Tax notices, and forward these documents to clients in a timely manner. Delaware corporations and LLCs are required by law to appoint a Delaware registered agent.

Registered agents must maintain a physical street address where service of process and other official documents can be served. A post office box is not acceptable.
