What is a registered agent for a San Diego LLC or Corporation. All San Diego businesses must have a “Registered Agent” for their LLC, S-Corporation or C-Corporation. A corporate entity cannot, by law, legally receive paperwork related to the business. They are an entity. Legal paperwork must be received by an “agent” – an actual person who is able to sign for the receipt of important paperwork such as service papers, or forms and correspondence by agencies such as the IRS, California tax agencies or the California Secretary of State.
Your registered agent for a San Diego LLC or Corporation must have a street address within California. This is where documents may be served upon your LLC or corporation during regular business hours. California law requires every company to have a registered agent for a San Diego LLC or corporation.
