A Registered Agent can be an individual, an entity or a commercial agent. The main purpose of a Registered Agent is to receive service of process or other legal communications on behalf of an entity. The Registered Agent must have a physical address in the State of Nevada.
A Registered Agent is a legal requirement if you are creating a new Nevada entity or registering your existing out of state entity with the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office.
Having a Registered Agent ensures the Secretary of State, and any other interested third parties such as creditors and governmental agencies, have a point of contact with entities registered within its jurisdiction. Any out of state entity conducting or transacting business within the State of Nevada, even if it does not maintain a physical presence in Nevada, is required to register as a foreign entity with the Nevada Secretary of State, which also requires the designation of a Registered Agent within the State of Nevada for the foreign entity.
