A North Dakota Registered Agent is an individual or business entity that is designated to receive any legal documents or other official correspondence on behalf of a business entity registered in the state. A registered agent must have a physical address in North Dakota and must be available during normal business hours to accept legal documents.
The registered agent is responsible for receiving and forwarding any legal documents, such as summons, complaints, or subpoenas, to the appropriate party. The registered agent also serves as a contact point for the state government to communicate important information to the business entity, such as tax forms, annual report notifications, or other important business notices.
It is important to note that it is the responsibility of the company to keep the North Dakota Secretary of State informed of the identity and contact information of the registered agent. If the registered agent’s contact information changes, the company must notify the Secretary of State immediately.
