facts you should know about a statutory agent in Ohio:
agent", "registered agent" and "resident agent"
are three names for the same thing: an agent authorized by a company
to receive documents and notices. (Since the three terms all refer
to a Resident of the
state acting as an AGENT,
we have coined the term "ragent" to include them
The statutory agent
must be either (1) a domestic company formed under Ohio corporate
law (2) a foreign corporation authorized to transact business in Ohio
(3) an adult individual who resides in Ohio. Because neither an LLC
(limited liability company) formed under Ohio law nor a foreign LLC
is specifically mentioned as eligible to be a registered agent, an
inquiry to the Ohio Secretary of State office is recommended if your
agent is a limited liability company.
It is important
to note that the statutory agent must have an Ohio street address
rather than a post office box and that the statutory agent must
sign a consent to be statutory agent and file it with the Ohio
Secretary of State.
