A registered agent is a business or individual who serves as a company’s representative. They are typically tasked with accepting documents on the LLC’s behalf, including official government correspondence. This can include service of process notices, tax information, communication from the Secretary of State, and notices of lawsuits. Registered agents act as a middle-man, as it is their job to see that members of the LLC receive these documents.
Nebraska Requirements For Individual Registered Agents
According to the Nebraska Secretary of State, one option that businesses have is to choose an individual to serve as their registered agent. Below are some of the requirements to be an individual registered agent in Nebraska:
- The individual must be resident of the state of Nebraska
- The agent must maintain a registered office with a physical address in the state
- A P.O. box does not suffice as a proper address

Nebraska Requirements For A Company Serving As A Registered Agent
Another option that Nebraska businesses have is to hire a third-party company or corporation to serve as their registered agent on their behalf. There are companies that exist solely to act as registered agents, making them a viable alternative. If a business entity wishes to go this route, they should ensure that:
- The corporation is authorized to do business in the state of Nebraska
- The company maintains a registered office with an address in the state
