What is an Indiana Registered Agent?

An Indiana registered agent is appointed by a business to accept on its behalf tax forms, state notices, and legal summons within the state of Indiana. You designate an Indiana registered agent when you form a business and file formation documents with the Secretary of State. An Indiana registered agent must maintain a physical office in Indiana where service of process and certified documents can be reliably delivered during regular business hours. Once documents are accepted, they must be forwarded to the client in a timely manner.
