What Is a Registered Agent?

In all 50 states, businesses registered as legal entities with the state are required by law to have a registered agent listed within their articles of incorporation/organization. Depending on the state you operate your business out of, this role may go by different names such as registered agent, a resident agent, or a statutory agent. Still, they all provide the same functions for businesses. A registered agent is an individual or legal entity that officially receives legal notifications from the state and service of process (SOP) on behalf of a business. A registered agent protects you from missing important legal notices and communication from the state or service of process should your business have legal action against it. The requirement to have a registered agent arose partly out of due process.

Why Are Texas Businesses Required to Have a Registered Agent?

Having a registered agent is a requirement every time you register a new Texas corporation or LLC. It is important to select a reliable company to act as your Texas 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 Texas 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

    A Texas registered agent receives legal notifications, on behalf of your business, at an official address within Texas. These can include your annual filing notices and other important documents such as SOP (service of process) if your company may be involved in legal action with another party. Registered agents handle these legal notifications correctly and in compliance with Texas law and all legal procedures. As opposed to having these documents mailed to your home or business address, having a Texas registered agent and an in-state, official address where legal notifications are sent avoids many risks, such as having these important notices misplaced or lost.

  • Flexibility

    With a Texas registered agent, you will comply with the law by always receiving official legal notices during standard business hours at a designated address within Texas provided by your registered agent. This service allows for flexibility in how you choose to operate your business. You will not need to always be present during standard business hours to receive official mail or even have a physical business location. If you do have a physical business location, you will not need to update your address with the state if you decide to relocate.

    With a registered agent, you will help secure the privacy of your personal information. If you use your home address to receive legal notices, it will be listed within public directories.

This service will, in turn, help keep your home address private from the public.

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 Texas 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.
