Do I Need a Resident Agent for my LLC?

startup team

A Resident Agent is required when you form an LLC. However, you may act as your own Resident Agent if you meet the requirements or you may hire a Resident Agent Service to act as your agent.

Bookly includes this service as an option with each of our incorporation service packages. 

There are a number of benefits with this service including: 

  • Staying Compliant. Bookly will help you stay in compliance with the state requirements for your LLC, avoid unnecessary state penalty fees and maintain your company's good standing in your state of incorporation.
  • Privacy. When a company is served with a Service of Process, it is often delivered by local law enforcement. Most business owners do not want police officers showing up in front of customers, employees or neighbors. A Resident Agent service will provide you a layer of anonymity. 
  • Registered Office. The registered agent for a business must be available during normal business hours to accept important documents as they are delivered.
