Commonly Asked Questions

What is a registered agent and why do you need one?

A Texas registered agent is an individual or business entity responsible for receiving important legal documents on behalf of your business. Think of your registered agent as your business' point of contact with the state. (Often confused, the Registered Agent’s address is NOT your business address and it CANNOT be a PO Box.)

A registered agent is REQUIRED to form your Texas LLC, PLLC, Corporation or nonprofit. When filing the articles of organization, every entity  must nominate a Texas registered agent for their company. The registered agent must have a physical address in the state where your business will be located.

A person or entity, serving as the Texas Registered Agent, must be present during normal business hours to accept Service of Process on behalf of the corporation they represent. Texas requires you to maintain a Texas registered agent on file at all times that your corporation is "ACTIVE". 

What does a Texas Registered Agent do?

The typical range of services a Registered Agent provides includes:

  • Receiving service of process documents for legal actions (ex. court documents, state entity notifications from the Texas Secretary of State, Texas Comptroller's Office, or County Clerk

  • Scanning, storing, and sending legal documents to client's electronically (uploading documents into secure online portal) 

  • Providing compliance calendars for filing information such as Texas annual reports, Texas Franchise tax returns, Texas Sales Tax Notifications

  • Note that other business mail is not handled by a registered agent. 

Why choose a registered agent?


Another advantage of hiring a registered agent service is the added layer of privacy. If you choose to be your own registered agent, keep in mind that:

  • A registered agent’s address is available to the public. Your home or business address will be publicly searchable.

  • Lawsuits will be served to the address of the registered agent. In the unfortunate event of a legal dispute, the lawsuit will be served at your place of business in front of your employees.


  • A major benefit of using a registered agent service is that it enables you to run your business the way you want. With a registered agent service, you can:

  • Maintain flexible business hours. A registered agent must be available during normal business hours (i.e. 9a - 5p or 8a -4p). By hiring a registered agent service, you can work the hours that work for you.
