Introduction – Nevada LLC Registered Agent
One of the most important steps towards forming a Limited Liability Company in Nevada is appointing a registered agent. The appointment of a Nevada LLC Registered Agent is necessary because:
- This is mandatory in Nevada according to Nevada Revised Statutes, Chapter 86 and Nevada Code – Chapter 77
- A Registered agent will ensure “service of process”
In Simpler terms, a Nevada LLC Registered Agent is an individual or a company that accepts “service of process” or legal notices and mail on behalf of the business entity. A registered agent is considered to be a third party and in some states they are also known as a statutory agent or resident agent.
- Commercial Registered Agents
- Non-Commercial Registered Agents
The distinction between a commercial and non-commercial registered agent has been established by the Model Registered Agents Act (MoRAA). This act came into effect in 2006 with the joint effort of the International Association of Commercial Administrators (IACA) and American Bar Association (ABA). Nevada is one of the 11 states, where a commercial registered agent is responsible for business formation and service of process.
Who is a commercial registered agent?
The Model Registered Agents Act (MoRAA) states that a commercial registered agent will be considered as a Nevada LLC registered agent if such an individual or entity is featured in the registered agent listing statement with the Nevada Secretary of State. IncParadise is one of the most reputed Nevada commercial registered agents listed in the state and provides a multitude of services for new and existing businesses.
