The appointment and maintenance of an in-state registered agent is required
Illinois is a haven for startup activity much of it due to its low property prices and low individual income tax rates -- the 13th friendliest in the nation. Another indicator of business success is the state's high business survival rate -- 80%, way above the national average. Despite this, doing business in Illinois requires compliance with many federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
You’re required to designate an in-state Registered Agent when you form your company and in each additional state in which you do business. The Registered Agent receives state communications regarding important filings and changes in organizational requirements and is also responsible for receiving notice of a lawsuit (“service of process”) on behalf of your business. With CT Corporation’s experience and expertise, you won’t miss a critical filing and endanger your business’ good standing.
