What is a Registered Agent a.k.a. Resident Agent or Statutory Agent?

Registered agents, resident agents, or statutory agents go by slightly different names depending on the state in which you operate your business, but they all provide the same basic services for your business. A Delaware registered agent is a designated individual or state-qualified corporate agent that receives official legal notices from the state of Delaware on behalf of your business. Delaware registered agents are also responsible for the reception of service of process communications (SOP), on behalf of your business should it be the target of legal action brought forth by a third party. All 50 states require that all businesses that are recognized as legal entities have a designated registered agent that will receive these types of communications on behalf of the business. Having a registered agent will protect your business from liabilities involved with missing important legal notices from the state or service of process communications. Registered agents are a necessary and essential part of responsibly operating a business that keeps you in compliance with Delaware laws.

What Does a Registered Agent Provide for Your Delaware Business?

Having a registered agent is a requirement every time you register a new Delaware Corporation or LLC. You must select a reliable company to act as your Delaware registered agent. Failing to establish and maintain a registered agent can have negative effects on the legal status of your company within the state and result in extra, unnecessary expenses. The person or entity must be located and available at a physical street address within the state of Delaware during normal business hours. A mailbox service or P.O. Box cannot represent you as your registered agent.

How Registered Agent Service Can Help Your Business

  • Legal Notifications

    Using an official address within the state, your Delaware registered agent safely and securely receives important legal documents such as your annual filing notices on behalf of your business. Having a registered agent receive legal notifications for your business, you avoid the risks of lost or misplaced mail associated with receiving such documents at a home or business address. Additionally, you can trust that a registered agent will handle your official mail correctly and responsibly, complying with the law and any necessary legal procedures that may be involved.

  • Flexibility

    When you hire a registered agent, maintaining a physical business location within Delaware and having someone always present during standard business hours to receive legal notices is not required. You will be in compliance with the law, as your Delaware registered agent will provide these services for your business through an official address where legal notices are sent. This creates a lot of flexibility for you in how you decide to operate your business. If you change your business address, you will not be required to update this information with the state of Delaware to be compliant and continue receiving official legal notices.

Having a registered agent is required in almost every state. The purpose is for the state to show a physical address in that state at which the company can be served with legal documents. We also receive notifications from many states and help you keep your company in good standing. An added benefit is the security of knowing InCorp is here to fulfill this requirement and provide you with a little more privacy.

When hiring InCorp as your commercial registered agent, we do not automatically file your documents to register your entity with the state. Formation and qualification filings are separate services, and we will be happy to prepare the entire filing for you once the additional service has been purchased. Our order processing team members will automatically provide consent forms for the states that require them, and we're here to help with Registered Agent Change forms at no additional charge if you'd like our assistance.

In most cases, yes, but we do require that you also be filed with the Secretary of State. Some agencies have requirements that we can't meet, like an address in a specific county or an individual serving instead of InCorp as a company. If you send over the document we'll review it to make sure we can meet the requirements.

The first thing is to order service. Once your order is placed and you have received the confirmation email, please contact our order processing team to proceed. Some states require our signature but it does not have to be a mailed original so you can just reply to your order confirmation with the document attached and we'll sign and return it to you. Other states require our original signature, in which case you can email us the document, we will sign it and mail it to you for submission to the state. Alternatively, you can mail us the complete package of documents and state payment and we will sign and forward the package to the state for you. A few states, like Wyoming, require a separate Registered Agent Consent form. We'll send that directly to you after your order is placed. Please call our order processing team or email us with any additional questions or concerns.

The general rule is that InCorp only serves as a Delaware registered agent for entities registered with the Secretary of State. We can serve for other agencies as well but need to be listed with the Secretary of State, also. When looking for a registered agent for an individual, we recommend using an attorney or law office.
