Most states, including Nebraska, require that
a corporation have a Registered Agent who maintains
a registered office within the state of incorporation.
This Registered Office may be at an address that
is different from the Corporation's business address
(as where the corporation's business office is not
located within the state).
Most often, you may act as registered agent for
a corporation as long as your Registered Address
is within the state. However, this address MAY NOT
be a post office box.
The main purpose of the registered Office/Agent
requirement is to provide potential claimants against
your corporation with a person, whose whereabouts
are available in public records, who may accept service
of process on behalf of the corporation. In addition,
tax notices and other official documents are usually
forwarded to the Registered Office/Agent.
By having an attorney as a registered agent, you
have immediate legal representation available should
the need arise.
