Advantages of Using a Professional Registered Agent

Stability – The registered agent’s address must be kept current with the Texas Secretary of State. A professional registered agent shouldn’t move, but if they ever do, they are keenly aware of of this requirement and will promptly file a change of registered address with the TXSOS. Updating timely is important as you do not want to miss an important notice or receipt of a lawsuit.

Reliability – Professional Registered Agents maintain records of when and what they received on behalf of their clients.

Anonymity – The Registered Agent’s address must be a physical address in Texas (no PO Boxes or mail services allowed). Many home-based business do not want to disclose the home address to the public in the Certificate of Formation.

Typical Reasons to Hire a Professional Registered Agent

  • The business is a home-based business;

  • You can freely change your business location without having to file a change of registered agent form ($15) each time you move;

  • You will receive important tax and legal documents via e-mail (instead of mail), if you so desire;
  • You do not want a process server or constable serving legal papers in front of your clients, employees, or neighbors;
  • You do not maintain normal business hours;
  • You do not currently live in Texas; and
  • You use a P.O. Box and do not want your home address used in a public record.
