The appointment and maintenance of an in-state registered agent is required

Oregon is a popular state to live and do business in, thanks to its business-friendly tax climate and natural beauty. Home to a growing technology sector, the state has much to offer entrepreneurs. However, doing business in Oregon requires compliance with many federal, state, and local laws and regulations.

Your registered agent must handle essential documents (such as annual reports and service of process) correctly and deliver them swiftly to the right people. CT Corporation’s experience and expertise remove that worry from your shoulders.

I strongly recommend CT Corporation as a reliable corporate compliance partner.

Senate Bill 359, effective January 1, 2020, creates procedures whereby a corporation’s board of directors may ratify a defective corporate action.

Other notices

February 2022 – The Oregon Secretary of State has posted a business alert concerning a mailing it called “deceptive and confusing” that resembles the official annual report notice form, but that comes from a private company, not affiliated with the Secretary of State. The alert, which includes a copy of the annual report notice form that is being mailed by the private company, can be read in full from the Secretary of State’s website here.
