“you’ve Been Served”: Why You Need A Ca Registered Agent/incorporate In California… And Nevada?

“You’ve Been Served.”: Why You Need a CA Registered Agent.

It’s a Monday afternoon. Your building is filled both with employees as well as customers. A well dressed man walks through the door and politely asks for you by name. When you approach him and identify yourself, he says the dreaded words: “You’ve been served.”

Suddenly, it’s so quiet in the room that you can hear a pin drop. Everyone is looking at you. After a moment or two, the bustle returns, but now the discomfort can be seen and felt. Your employees are looking at you with concern. Some of your customers have left, and the ones who remain look reluctant about doing business.

In a country where there are an average of about 50,000 new lawsuits filed every business day, the scenario above demonstrates one of the reasons that, if you operate a corporation in California, you need a CA Registered Agent.

Registered agents receive service of process and other legal correspondence on behalf of a corporation. Corporations are required to have one and usually can’t act as their own registered agent. And, considering the above scenario, why would you want to?

In addition to receiving service of process — away from your employees and your customers — in the unfortunate event that your business is sued, the registered agent also serves as a permanent address where communication from the IRS can be received on your behalf. If you’ve changed office locations or are planning to in the near future, this is particularly beneficial. The registered agent’s fiduciary responsibility to ensure that these documents reach you avoids the risks that come with communication that never reaches you.

If you’re starting a corporation and you need a CA registered agent, we would be glad to help. For more information, contact us.

Incorporate in California… And Nevada?

If you’re looking for the ultimate in privacy as well as tax savings, perhaps you’ve heard that forming a corporation in Nevada is the way to go. But California is your home state and the state in which you will be doing business. So, is it possible to incorporate in California and Nevada both? Yes, it is. And, in some circumstances, it is definitely an option worth considering.

According to a recent article from Entrepreneur, Nevada is a popular state for forming a corporation for a number of reasons. It is one of only two states that doesn’t charge a franchise fee. It’s one of only six states that doesn’t levy a corporate income tax. However, the article warns, you’ll still be subject to a franchise fee and income tax in the state where you operate, so that shouldn’t be the only reason for dual incorporation.

There is another reason, though. The statutes of Nevada make it nearly impossible to pierce the corporate veil. What this means for you is that only in cases of outright fraud will you — as an officer, director, or shareholder — ever face liability if your corporation gets sued. Regardless of the state in which you conduct business, proper incorporation in Nevada provides you additional assets.

Corporate California can provide dual state registration in order to establish your business entity in both California and Nevada. In addition, our deluxe package provides you with a registered agent in both states as well as a number of other services to ensure that your incorporation is done right and remains in good standing.
