Vermont Registered Agent Service

What is a Vermont registered agent?

A Vermont resident or company that maintains a physical address in the state and is willing to accept legal documents on behalf of a business. We scan and upload those documents at our office in Shelburne, VT so you can view them immediately.

Why do I need a Vermont registered agent?

  • All businesses registered with the state must appoint a registered agent.
  • The Vermont Secretary of State’s Corporation’s Division will reject your filing if you do not appoint one.
  • So that the state and the general public have a reliable way to contact your Vermont business with legal notices and other types of official mail.

Note: The Vermont Secretary of State sometimes calls registered agents “process agents,” especially in reference to LLCs. Both terms mean the same thing.
