What is a Georgia Registered Agent?

A Georgia registered agent is a third-party appointed by a corporation or LLC for the purpose of accepting service of process, legal documents and government notifications on behalf of clients. A Georgia registered agent is a legal requirement for all business entities in Georgia. Every registered agent in Georgia must maintain a physical office in the state and be open during regular business hours to ensure documents can be reliably delivered. When documents are accepted, they must be forwarded to the client in a timely manner.
