Re: Registered Agent in SC

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Jan,

It sounds like you are pretty knowledgeable about this.  Is it your
experience that we would need to have a registered agent for each state in
which we do engineering - or is it a state by state basis?  I am registered
in 18 states and we have recently changed from a sole proprietorship to an
S-Corp so we are going through the process of getting Certificates of
Authorization where they are needed.
