What Is a Minnesota Registered Agent and Why Do I Need One?

According to Minnesota state statute chapter 5 §36, all business entities registered or formed in Minnesota must designate a registered agent. These agents accept all important legal documents, like service of process and official mail from the state, on behalf of the business. Registered agents in Minnesota may also be referred to as statutory agents or resident agents.

Having a registered agent ensures that your Minnesota business is properly notified and receives any services of process or notices from the state before a lawsuit can move forward in court.
