A registered agent is an individual or a business entity located at a physical street address in Oregon, whose sole responsibility is to accept legal documents (service of process, lawsuits, liens, subpoenas, etc.) on behalf of the business. An entity cannot designate itself as its own registered agent.
The registered office is the physical street address where the registered agent is located during normal business hours. The registered office address may be the same as the business' place of business. The registered office address must be a physical street address located in Oregon.
The registered office address is where the Corporation Division will mail correspondence, renewal and late notices, unless a separate mailing address for the business is provided.
