Your company’s registered agent needs to be available at the registered office during normal business hours. The registered office must be a physical address in the state where your business is formed or incorporated or registered to do business as a foreign corporation or LLC.
Note: A post office box or private rented mailbox does not qualify as a physical address.
The registered office address is also available as public record, along with your formation or foreign qualification documents which have been filed with the state. If a business office address is not required on the documents, the registered agent’s address will be used. In this case, it’s the only address on file for your company.
If you have a physical address in your state of formation, you can name, as your registered agent, yourself, another owner, an employee or someone else who works for the company or who will be there to receive documents served on them during the required hours. However, the company may not be named as its own registered agent.
