A Registered Agent is a person or company that you select to receive legal and tax documents on behalf of your business including time-sensitive mail from the Secretary of State, such as annual statements, or tax letters from the Franchise Tax Board. A Registered Agent serves as the first point of contact for claims or lawsuits against your business by accepting Service of Process - documents that initiate a lawsuit.
Maintain your privacy. Did you know that when you register your company with the state, your name, address, and private information may become available to the public? American Startup highly recommends that you allow us - a private service company, to serve as your registered agent.

The form and substance for evidencing a company’s managerial decisions varies depending on whether a company is formal, as in the case of a corporation, or more casual, as in the case of a limited liability company (LLC). Other factors that impact how decisions should be recorded depend on whether the company is privately held, or, whether it is public – its stock is publicly traded.
Generally, corporate resolutions are formal declarations of major decisions made by a corporate board of directors and often, supported by resolutions made by the shareholder. The resolutions are often used to determine which corporate officers are legally able to sign contracts on behalf of the company, and make other important decisions that bind the corporation. LLCs will typically use a written action made by the members for similar purposes, particularly if the LLC is acquiring real estate or obtaining a loan.
American Startup offers a wide selection of company minute templates, resolutions, and actions by written consent in lieu of meetings. We can assist you in obtaining the proper form for your purpose.

Often underestimated as outdated, the Company Minute Book may be the dinosaur that one day saves the company. Minute Books house the legal documents that support the company’s standing as an entity separate from its owner – a separation known as the Corporate Veil. It holds all formation documents, bylaws or operating agreements, a record of meetings and key decisions by its Board and Shareholders, and records all stockholder purchases and sales of shares. Licenses, permits, and annual state or local reports or statements are often included in the corporate record book.
Even in our digital world, Auditors still request to see signed original documents in hard copy and the original Minute Book to verify the accuracy and legitimacy of the organization. American Startup offers both virtual and hardbound company minute books that may be customized with the company name, logo, and tagline.
