Every corporation or LLC must have an in-state registered agent in its formation state and in every state where it is registered to do business. A registered agent is an individual or a company appointed by an LLC or corporation to receive service of process, legal documents, and other communications on behalf of the business, and then relay that information to the appropriate party.
In South Carolina, a business’s registered agent is listed on the South Carolina Secretary of State’s website. Our attorneys generally recommend that a third party serve as the registered agent for your South Carolina business, in order to protect your privacy and offer peace of mind. Palmetto Corporate Services is an affiliated entity with which we will be happy to connect you.
